Fernando Alonso ‘extremely happy’ with Costly Points

Published

Ferrari’s Alonso declared himself as extremely happy after safely second place and costly points in the Spanish GP on Super Sunday. Ferrari driver seemed set to complete in fourth, other than he increased two positions after Lewis Hamilton crashed out of the race and Vettel hit problem with his brakes in the final minutes of the occasion.

The result permitted Fernando Alonso to move into second place in the standings, just three points behind championship leader Jenson Button. Fernando Alonso confesses the result was incredible for him after not the best of race weekends.

“Now I feel extremely happy after the result today and when you gain two positions in last part of race, unexpected positions, it feels great, and you have a fantastic feeling right now,” Alonso told, “Overall the weekend has been so-so for us, but in terms of result fantastic weekend for us.

“Fourth in qualifying, second in the race is fantastic for the team.”

The two-time champion conceded, however, that Ferrari needs to improve in order to catch Red Bull, after Mark Webber dominated the race.

“We need to improve, we know that,” he said. “We saw this weekend, we saw we need to improve in some areas in the car, especially for qualifying.

“We learned some things this weekend. We worked again to maximize our potential. We know sometimes we will be third, sometimes fifth, sometimes first hopefully. As long as we do our best we can be satisfied.”
