Fernando Alonso believes that Red Bull's victory at the Canadian Grand Prix shows that Ferrari must not give up on their 2014 season.

Alonso finished the race at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in sixth place, a result which leaves him in fourth place in the championship.

The Spaniard reckons that Ferrari was fortunate to even score points.

"Looking at the wild final stages of the race, we picked up some “lucky” points, but we still can’t be happy with where we finished as our aim was to do better than this," he said.

"In the beginning, my pace wasn’t good and I wasn’t happy with the balance of my car. Then in the second stint, when the track began to improve, we found a good rhythm and we managed to catch the group in front.

"But we weren’t quick enough to join the fight."

"What Red Bull did in the race shows how quickly things can change in Formula 1 and that should be further motivation for us to get to a point where we can fight for the win.

"This weekend, we have made some steps forward, especially on the aerodynamic front, but the others have also improved and now, all we can do is carry on working to be as well prepared as possible for the forthcoming races."
