Fernando Alonso re-lived the outcome of the Chinese Grand Prix as he prepares himself for the final round of the 2007 Formula 1 World Championship and the Brazilian Grand Prix, a race he will have to start from fourth on the grid.

Struggling somewhat compared to his main rivals, Alonso was forced to make two attempts at making it through to the second knockout phase alone, but nonetheless comfortably made it into the top ten.

Once there, Alonso would benefit from being the last driver to set a qualifying time, but was unable to better the marker set by Felipe Massa, Lewis Hamilton and Kimi Raikkonen, leaving him on the second row of the grid.

The most crucial name in that list though is Hamilton, and with Alonso starting directly behind his chief title rival, it seems to be advantage Lewis heading into the race.

However, the Spaniard points out that anything can very well happen, particularly after what happened at Shanghai when Hamilton threw away the chance to wrap the title up in China with an off.

"Obviously I would have liked to be on the front row, but it was not to be. We made some changes to the car for qualifying but unfortunately they didn't work as well as we thought they would and as a result I was not totally confident with the car.

"However as we have seen in China a lot of things can take place during a long race, so we will have to wait and see what happens tomorrow."
