Monaco is a one-off event. The cars run different steering, different aero, different setups, etc... The track makes passing impossible. Drawing any conclusions from this race is silly. Canada will be interesting. Will Merc dominate again o pole then fade, or have they learned something in the last several weeks that extends their tire deg enough to allow them to capitalize on their single lap pace? Or, will Red Bull and Ferrari step it up and take them down? Will Lotus's tire strategy continue to hide their relatively slower pace, or is that advantage slipping away, leaving Kimi as their only real asset? Canada will expose this, Monaco is meaningless.

Monaco isn't an isolated event at all, just the latest in a uneven record of performance from Ferrari. Every other race Ferrari fortunes change. This team doesn't seem to be able to produce results race after race like Red Bull does. It's looking like another losing campaign for Ferrari and another wasted opportunity for Alonso. If I remember correctly Alonso had talks with Red Bull in 2009 after he had gone back to Renault, he must regret the decision not to go there. Ferrari just isn't the team it was when Byrne and Ross and Todt and Martinelli were there.

Nada, Ferrari will keep winning races this year, Monaco just shows they dont have the good way when the tires are not the critical aspect of a race, which is how Ferrari have managed to stay competitive over the last year plus. More critical the tires, the better Ferrari's chances will be. I am sure that had nothing to do with the secret test (and the current spec of tires???).
