F1 » Alonso: We need a perfect race now


Fernando Alonso: This is one of the tracks where we suffer a bit more than usual, but in general our Sunday performance is better and so, again this time, our approach to the race is positive.

Even with a perfect race there isn't much to earn by him and Ferrari. Until a few races ago he could blame Ferrari for the lack of speed, but now he has fallen in anonimity as well, he is not taking everything out of his car as he did in the past. He is loosing focus, motivation and precious points to his rivals in the bid to claim 2nd in the WDC and his team doing likewise in the WCC. On this form, the only thing that can save him and Ferrari is the others suffering bad luck.

FS, I agree Alonso hasn't been performing at his usual level recently. 5 races out of 6 Massa has bettered him in qualifying which is unheard of. Not sure what's wrong with him but he better sort it out before Kimi arrives, and I think he probably will.

FS, Anything could happen next season with the new rules but I think the sign of a good team is the ability to adapt and improve and Ferrari haven't done that in recent years.
RBR have been able to improve their car throughout the season and Ferrari haven't and blaming the wind tunnel each year isn't good enough.
I have a lot of respect for Stefano but I'm starting to think he isn't a strong enough driving force to be principal of such a big team with such high expectations.
Give Alonso the right tools and he'll deliver, no doubt about that.

Agree Ty. But still Ferrari could be very strong next year. They have many resources, and will have Allison and de Beer as well. And the mighty Rory Byrne is looking after the project. With Alonso and Raikkonen on board they have maybe the two strongest drivers on race pace and driving stamina at the moment. But will this be enough. Alonso and Raikkonen were able to finish runner up to Vettel last year and are doing the same this year. Could they be doing the same next year?
