Alonso worries repeat of perfect 2012 season

Fernando Alonso says that, it will be nearly impossible repeat of perfect 2012 season, but still believes better start for next season.

Alonso admits that not easy job to beat Red Bull next year. This season Ferrari made terrible start, especially they are failed with qualifying pace. Some official reports cleared that Ferrari struggled with wind tunnel problem. Second half of the season they are done better job but no step having the quickest car in the field.

Alonso’s consistent point finish gives a better opportunity for title, in the final race at Brazil he finished second behind Jenson Button, and title only missed out by just three points. Also the Spaniard call 2012 was a perfect year of his career.

“I think it’s been a perfect year. It’s going to be nearly impossible to repeat that in my career.” Alonso is quoted by Autosport.

“You just have the feeling that some years you have done a good job and others when you feel there was something missing or something you wanted to change or want to improve for next year,”

“A worst start would be impossible. We were some 2.5 seconds off the pace in the Jerez test when the car made its debut, so it’s nearly impossible that it will be worse, and so I expect a better start.

“But there’s no doubt that Red Bull will be favourite at the start. They finished the season with a pretty strong dominance and [the] rules are more of less the same.” Spaniard added.

“They [Red Bull, McLaren] had a seven, eight-tenth advantage so we need to close that gap in two months, which is not easy. There will be a lot of work, but the starting point will be much better than last year, which is not hard.”
