Following the Suzuka Sunday race, Fernando Alonso describes about the turn one collision and DNF. He says that its motorsport anything happening during race, and he hints that five races to go, it will be like a mini championship.
Now he is just four points ahead of defending world champion Sebastian Vettel. Championship leader twirl out of the Japanese Grand Prix race at the turn one following contact with Lotus’s Kimi Raikkonen.
“I think one time I will retire, maybe next time Vettel will retire, you never know, that’s motorsport,” Alonso said after the race.
“It’s five races to go, it will be like a mini championship, because we start with the same points and we need to score one more point [than him] in five races. So we will try to do it.”
“I had no pace on the right, I had Button I think on my left, I had Kimi… and I don’t understand why Kimi didn’t lift off or anything because there was not any room,” Alonso said of the first corner fracas.
“I don’t know what Kimi’s idea was for the first corner, but that is the way it is and this time it was bad luck for us.”
