GP Week : Issue 207
Fernando Alonso is one tough, street- fighting dude – and this effort, keeping not one but two pace-setting Mercedes behind, with soft Pirellis almost on their last legs, was one of the spaniard’s best: "T his podium means a lot to me and the whole team, because after so many difficult races, we managed to get the most out of everything, also taking a few risks and second place seems like a win. “To do 31 laps at the end on used soft tyres was a great challenge. At that point, the strategy suggested that if we had made a third stop, we could have finished fourth, but we decided to run to the flag instead. “This race shows that anything is possible when there are unusual conditions like today, with a wet start and the appearance of the safety Car. We managed to make the most of all opportunities that presented themselves, taking the best decisions even at the most difficult moments. sure, the characteristics of the circuit, with its limited overtaking opportunities, helped us and that's why we have to be realistic and continue to work on the car, to improve in all aspects." even Kimi had a good day, recovering well from the team’s qualifying faux pas: "Today's race was difficult, but much more fun than the others, as I had a good feeling with the car, the pace was good and I felt I could push. After the way qualifying went yesterday, sixth was the most we could hope for. “At the start, I got away well but then I lost vital time behind a sauber and when I caught Massa's Williams, I couldn' t get past: here in general, overtaking is not easy and we lack speed down the straights. “sure, this is a good team result, but we must not get too excited, because even if there are signs of improvement, we still have much work to do in a lot of areas to get to where we want to be. We've had a very complicated start to the season, but I hope the second part of the championship will go better. I have great faith in the team and I feel we are going in the right direction. even if it's going to take some time, I 'm sure the results will come."
