‘Black day’ for Ferrari THE loss of an almost certain race win and a non-points finish for Ferrari in the Singapore Grand Prix was described by the team’s Team Principal Stefano Domenicali as “a black day.” “We had the potential to finish first and second but we didn’t even pick up a point,”he said after the race. “We are very disappointed but that doesn’t mean we are downtrodden. We have always shown our ability to react, especially at the most difficult of times and we will do it again this time.” Ferrari suffered a nightmare race, as race- leader Felipe Massa’s first pit-stop finished in chaos. He was shown the green light to exit his box while the fuel hose was still attached to his car, and his subsequent departure into the path of Adrian Sutil wrenched the hose from the fuel rig, and saw a number of his mechanics brought to the floor. The unsafe release resulted in a drive-through penalty, coupled to the time lost as he waited at the end of the pit-lane for his mechanics to dislodge the still-attached hose. “I am very sorry for Felipe,”Domenicali said, “because he was driving a very strong race following on from a great pole yesterday.” The team looked on for a points finish from Kimi Raikkonen, however the Finn crashed out of the race within touching distance of the chequered flag for the second time in three 26 races, coming unstuck at the infamous Turn 10 ‘tic-tac curves.’ “I was trying to attack Glock in case he made a mistake, but I went slightly wide at the chicane, jumping over the kerb and when the car landed, I lost control and ended up in the barriers,” he said. “Morale is not high today, but I am not used to giving up and will do my very best to try and help the team reach its targets.”
