ALONSO: “ONE OF THE BEST RACES OF THE YEAR”

October 28, 2012|

“We can fight the Red Bulls, but at the moment, we still don’t have a car capable of winning. Once again this year we have seen that, in the race, the situation is much better than in qualifying. A great start, a great first lap, a good top speed and the right tyre management produced, […]

ALONSO: ¡¡I DON´T GIVE UP!!

October 27, 2012|

“We tried to get the most out of what we had, but there was no way we could be ahead of the Red Bulls and McLarens. In the end, fifth place is not so bad, because it would have been easy to end up even further back if anything had gone wrong. Clearly, finishing ahead […]

ALONSO: “WE CAN IMPROVE”

October 26, 2012|

“This is an interesting circuit: after the longest straight, there’s a combination of high speed corners which are very nice to drive. Today the track was still very dirty, which is usually the case at new tracks that aren’t used very often. Tomorrow, when it will deliver more grip, it will be even more fun. […]

ALONSO: “A GOOD SUNDAY”

October 14, 2012|

Fernando Alonso: “It was a difficult race and, come the end of the weekend, I am happy with the way things went. I was starting from the dirty side of the track, we had doubts over tyre life and what would be the race pace of our rivals. With all these concerns, managing to get […]

ALONSO: “WE HAVE THE BEST TEAM”

October 13, 2012|

Fernando Alonso: “I’d say we’ve made a step forward compared to Japan, just a week ago, both in terms of grid position and also the gap to the front. You can see that our car is better suited to this track, given that it is basically the same one we raced in Japan. We must […]

ALONSO: “HARD TO SAY WHERE WE ARE COMPARED TO THE OTHERS”

October 12, 2012|

Fernando Alonso: “It’s hard to say where we are compared to the others, because today, we focused mainly on ourselves, working this morning on a comparison of various ideas relating to car configuration and, in the afternoon on the tyres. We must wait til tomorrow to have a more precise picture of the situation. The […]
