F1 » Second place 'tastes like a win' to Alonso


Fernando Alonso was in high spirits on Sunday evening in Melbourne. He might not have won the race, but he was happy to be starting 2013 on the right foot.

John, second place is 8 points better than 5th place, Alonso lost the last championship by 3 points so use your fingers and work out how second place is WAY better than 5th!

As for Lulu being happy with 5th, he's not aiming for a championship that's why he's happy with mediocrity.

Good job by Ferrari and both their drivers today, keep it up.

i thought alonso had a great race, he had a fantastic start loads of great overtaking and the ferrari seemed really fast in race trim.

ok they used the undercut to get in front of massa but the redbull could not keep up , he probably thinks he should of won as he beat seb but lotus strategy/car and kimis driving beat them both and they both did not expect that .

i really hope lotus are a contender this year , strategies come into play more and it becomes a 3 way race so much more exciting watch !!

What a surprise... Alonso's STILL talking about last year's car. This guy is the biggest whiner in F1.

And "Red Bull is still the quickest car"??? Is Alonso on drugs? Vettel's Red Bull had no malfunctions and not only could he not keep pace with Alonso's Ferrari, he couldn't get past Sutil even though Sutil's tyres were 7 laps older.

Looked like Ferrari were going to let their drivers fight for the win..................... then they hung Massa out to dry on strategy.

Same old Same old Ferrari.
