Alonso works out with ‘Uptown Funk’

On Thursday, McLaren speedy Fernando Alonso uploaded a training footage on his YouTube, backed by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ hit “Uptown Funk”.

The somewhat uncommon video shows a moody looking Fernando Alonso working out in the gymnasium.

The half-minute video shows Alonso balancing on and then training with the exercise ball, before a close up of the Spaniard running on a treadmill.

Earlier in Malaysia, the Spaniard told reporters he would prefer not to let the world know what his real thoughts were when he watched on television the woeful progress of his new team at the Melbourne opener.

At the same time, his former team Ferrari is riding a wave of rapid progress, with Alonso’s 2015 replacement Sebastian Vettel winning in Malaysia. The Maranello marque, it seems, does not miss the 33-year-old at all.

But after Malaysia, despite his retirement from the race, Alonso sounded upbeat.

“Three days ago, that was unthinkable. It was a bit of a surprise to be racing with a group of other cars,” said Alonso.

“I don’t know what happened exactly with the car but if we had a normal winter surely we would have found these small faults.”

Finally, he added that in the wake of his concussion and long recovery from his Barcelona crash, he felt healthy throughout the Malaysian weekend.

“I am a little tired after this heat,” he revealed, “but it would not have been a problem to finish the race.

“I do need to train more in these days before China, because sitting on the couch for so long was not the best preparation.”
