Alonso: Main target is to finish in front of Red Bull in tomorrow



Fernando Alonso is still confident that they can fight with Red Bull for this season championship, but Red Bull continues the domination with last three grand prix victory and Indian GP whole domination.

Tomorrow the Red Bull Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber will start from front row on the grid, but despite Championship contender Fernando Alonso will start from third row on the grid beside with his team-mate and also behind the McLaren’s duo.

Alonso says that, he believes Ferrari’s latest updates and expecting it will to help in race. Also he added that first target is to finish in front of them tomorrow’.

“I think it is more challenging for us now, but I remain 100 per cent confident that we will fight for this championship, and we will win it.”

“I think they are dominant on Saturday and they have the fastest car at the moment, so they are first and second,” explained Alonso. “It was first position for Webber in Korea and pole position here for Vettel, so they are dominant as a team performance.

“But I think on Sunday normally our pace improved a little bit and we saw in Korea also that we were putting some pressure on Webber especially, so let’s wait for tomorrow.

“I think we can do a good race. I still think that we can take some good points and hopefully score more points than Seb and, in the next races, be a little bit more competitive.

“But the first target is to finish in front of them tomorrow and I think we have chances to do it.”

“I think we have improved our car and we are making the car faster, especially in this race, just not in the last few grands prix. But this I think happened to every team.

“You need to put something big on your car when you are not the fastest. You need to have a bigger update and what we have here in India was a small upgrade – we are waiting for some new parts coming in the next races and hopefully we can be close to Red Bull that at the moment is very dominant.

“But I think it was a general situation all year. It is not like in the last few races the wind tunnel was not giving us the right information and we lost the pace. We were off the pace in February, off the pace in July, off the pace in September. So we keep more or less consistent then.”
