Fernando Alonso says he is still aiming for a points finish in the Monaco Grand Prix despite having to start from the pit lane.
The Ferrari driver has been forced to miss today's qualifying after his car was too damaged to be fixed in time following a crash during the final practice session this morning. Fastest in both of yesterday's practice sessions, Alonso will be forced to start from the pit lane with a new chassis.
"These things happen and you can't do anything about it," Alonso said. "Now let's hope Felipe [Massa] can have a good qualifying and let's see what the positions are for tomorrow thinking about a possible comeback.
"We'll see. It's difficult to start from last place in Monaco but it's a long race and, in 2006, [Michael] Schumacher started last and finished in fifth, so tomorrow the goal is to score some points. We'll see if we are that lucky."
