The 2018 Formula One season started off as good as they could have expected for the Ferrari bunch. Sebastian Vettel won the first two race of the year in Australia and Bahrain. His teammate Kimi Raikkonen was just as stout in earning three podium finishes in the first four races. They also locked out the front row of qualifying for two of the first three races as well. But, in the races since, well they’ve been just pedestrian.
Since his two wins, Vettel has had just one podium finish in the last four races. That came by virtue of a runner-up effort in the last race in Monaco. He was eighth (China), fourth (Baku) and fourth (Spain) in his other three races prior to that.
Raikkonen, had a DNF in Spain and a fourth place finish in Monaco.
Now, can they rebound this weekend in the Canadian Grand Prix (2 p.m. ET/ABC)?
Ferrari has a record setting 13 wins in Montreal. But, their last win came back in 2004. While Vettel and Raikkonen are past winners on Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, they didn’t win their Ferrari.
Vettel, does have eight straight top five finishes on the Canadian circuit but only half of them have resulted in a podium. He finished fourth last year. Raikkonen, has just one top five finish in Canada since 2011. In fact, his results in that time frame are DNF, eighth, ninth, 10th, fourth, sixth and seventh respectively.
They want to rebound this weekend but stats say they may not.
