Alonso, who was fighting the McLarens for the race win, put in a blistering lap in free air before coming up behind Chandhok and losing a massive two seconds that lap alone.
Ferrari later argued that the lost time behind the Hispania Racing backmarker cost Alonso the Canadian GP victory, prompting Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo to launch yet another scathing attack on F1’s newcomers.
Chandhok, though, has revealed that he was all set to apologise to the Spaniard but wasn’t able to talk to him.
“Towards the end of the race, Fernando Alonso lost time behind me,” he told the Daily Telegraph.
“That was a real shame for him but I did not know that lurking behind him and Sebastien Buemi was Jenson Button.
“I tried after the race to have a talk to him but it didn’t work.
“There (in Valencia) I will definitely talk to him.”
