Fernando Alonso – I have been focusing on maximum speed

Bahrain GP winner and Ferrari ace Fernando Alonso is sure that his spotlight on Sunday race planning.

Fernando qualified 3rd however was the only driver who focusing on challenging the Red Bulls for pole. He completed just under two tenths off Vettel’s new lap record, but said his practice sessions had been devoted to optimizing his car for a long and action packed race.

It’s not a surprise because I was not expecting a clear order,” he said when asked whether he expected to be behind the Red Bulls. “Friday’s times mean truly nothing because with a diverse fuel load that we have this year everybody can have different training for this weekend.

Yesterday I was 15th, so we were getting ready for the race evaluated to our participants a little bit more. Tomorrow the race is long, so we’ll try to finish the race on the podium like Bahrain, and we want to keep scoring points. There will be a long race, with safety cars, accidents, problems and it will be very tough.”

But, he confesses he could not forecast whether his Ferrari will have the race speed to win on Sunday. First we need to finish the race and then see if we are quick to win the race or not, he added. I’m very happy with a position in the top three, but this is the start of the weekend and tomorrow is the real work.
