Alonso target score points in Melbourne



Unhappy man Fernando Alonso is still targeting point finish at Australian GP, Alonso made a mistake in Q2 at strait line and he was half spin, car stop on gravel and discontinues his running. And he is also admits it was his own mistake.

Reporters asked what his target for the race would be he replied: “I think points will be the first priority and then the second priority the top five.”

“I think I touched the grass. I obviously didn’t realise when I was driving but looking at the TV the left tyres were on the grass so I spun putting the tyres there and qualifying finished unfortunately in the gravel. I don’t know what the position would be without the incident, maybe it was possible to go in to Q3, maybe not, because the times were very close. If you were in Q3 you’d have no new tyres for tomorrow so maybe at the end of the day it’s a good compromise to be P12 with new tyres.”

“We’re obviously not quick enough, we’re obviously not competitive to fight for the top places at the moment so this is something that maybe we knew and we expected after winter testing. We had some ideas and today we have confirmed that we are not competitive. There’s still a lot of work to do, we have to be more determined than either.

“We have to work and I’m sure we’ve worked 24 hours a day before this race, now we need to work 25 and it’s the only way to improve the car and to win races soon. This is the target, the target maybe was to start the championship with a competitive car able to win races that was the message in the winter and all the second part of last year. We didn’t arrive at that target of arriving in Australia with a winning car so we need to arrive as soon as possible with a winning car in the next couple of grands prix.”
