Felipe Massa is looking to kick start his season in Canada after failing to score points at the last three rounds.

10335 - Massa confident to end points drought in Canada

Ferrari team-mate Fernando Alonso scored 43 points over the same period, underlining Massa's struggle.

"Those three races in May did not go well for me," Massa told Ferrari's official website. "I failed to pick up points and my biggest regret came in the last of the three, in Monaco. As Fernando showed, by fighting at the front right to the end, we had a very good potential there and I think I could have finished the race in fourth place.

"Unfortunately, there was the accident with Hamilton, which put me out of the running: a real shame, but there's little point in going over it again. I said what I wanted to about the incident after the race and now it's not worth wasting more time over it, so it's better to look ahead."

He said Alonso's performance in Monaco, where the Spaniard battled with championship leader Sebastian Vettel for victory, gave him hope that he would be competitive at the next two races.

"There was at least one positive aspect to the weekend and that is the fact our car was much more competitive than we had seen it at the previous race," Massa added. "Finally, we could fight all the way to the end, even if circumstances meant that only applied to one of us. Our pace was very good and I hope that will also be the case in Canada and Valencia. We should have some new technical updates there, which along with the softer tyres, should be a help, on paper at least and then we will see what the actual situation is, starting on Friday in Montreal."
