Alonso brushes off Briatore's 'Fault' comment

Alonso brushes off Briatore’s ‘Fault’ comment

Fernando Alonso says McLaren-Honda will hopefully give Flavio Briatore “some satisfaction next year” following his manager questioned the decision to join the team.

Last month Briatore has hinted for the first time that Alonso’s move to McLaren-Honda may have been a mistake.

The management of Spaniard Alonso’s career is still directed by his former Renault boss Briatore.

“I think Ferrari is the team he loved the most, but there was a time when too many people spoke and it was unbearable. It was no fault of the management, but gossip. Briatore said

“He was criticised for not being more successful but the car was not able to be on the second row and he got it there,” he insisted.

“He would also have been world champion in Abu Dhabi (in 2010) if they had just got the strategy right,” Briatore added.

Alonso has brushed off the comments.

“I don’t know why he said that, he was one of the people who persuaded me to join the project. Alonso told Sky Sports F1

“But hopefully we can give him some satisfaction next year. He’s definitely sad for the performance that the team shows after convincing him as well of joining the project.”

The Spaniard once again insisted that he does not regret leaving Ferrari.

“There are no regrets,” he added. “When you finish something in one place it’s time to leave it, that’s my feeling about leaving Ferrari.

“I think I did my best there and was the perfect time to finish on a high.”
