¡¡¡MAGIC!!!

Apotheosis of Fernando at the GP of Malaysia, after a memorable career in which he has written, in gold letters, one of the most beautiful pages of this sport. Dominating from start to the end and beating once more, adversities, Fernando has been known to be a step above his car and has achieved a great victory. Good start, superb strategy and above all, hands and talent Fernando. At end of the race, exhausted but happy, Fernando could not hide his great joy for this result:

ALONSO EN EL PODIO MALASIA 2012

“It was an incredible race! I am very happy, for me and for the whole team: I am proud of this fantastic group of people. While we have been going through this difficult time, no one gave up, in fact everyone has doubled their efforts to try and catch up. The strategy was perfect, the mechanics did an impeccable job, the engineers did their best in preparing the car and I drove at my maximum for all 56 laps of the race. I would never have bet on this win and I would think anyone who did so must have picked up a tidy sum! As I returned to the pit lane on the cool down lap I didn’t even know where to park the car: to win with all the problems we have got is something quite extraordinary. In the wet, I was going very well, but then when the track dried out, our weaknesses showed themselves. Sergio got very close and I was trying to stay on the only dry line: if he wanted to pass me, he would have had to take a risk. Yesterday, he and I ended up ninth and tenth and today we found ourselves fighting for the win, which shows how unpredictable is this championship. Our aim was damage limitation for these early races of the championship and now we even find ourselves leading the classification. Now we absolutely have to improve the performance starting right away with the races in China and Bahrain. We must get back to work immediately so as to find at least the two or three tenths that could put us back in the fight for the top places.”
