Fernando Alonso hopes that Ferrari does a good job in the Turkish race - Formula 1
Recent reports have revealed that Formula 1 driver, Fernando Alonso, is hopeful about Ferrari doing a good job at the Turkish Grand Prix. Alonso considers Ferrari to still have the positive ability to show a clear picture of their performance in the up-coming
races despite its poor start in the 2011 season.
Ferrari seemed quite strong in the winter testing but it could not manage a good start this season since they started with an uncompetitive car. In the China race, Alonso put his team on the seventh spot but the Ferrari squad was still happy with both their
Even though, he had a poor race in Shanghai, the two-time world champion is still looking forward to a podium position in the remaining races of the season. He admitted that although he knows it’s not the start of the season, he is still anxious to exhibit
an excellent performance for his team.
Ferrari’s 50 points, at the moment, are not enough for a season victory since they need a lot more points to compete with other Formula 1 teams that are way ahead of them. The Spanish driver said that he has absolute trust and hope in his team and that Ferrari
will bring a positive change in its run soon in the Turkish race.
He also discussed his previous performances in Formula 1. He said, "I well remember when I was at Renault in 2006, that in the first part of the season I had built up a big lead but then Ferrari made such a good job of developing its cars that Michael Schumacher
staged a great fight back, overtaking me with two races remaining”.
He appreciated McLaren’s run, from winter testing to the China race. Alonso added, "This year has been no exception to that rule: after the final test in Barcelona, everyone reckoned the McLarens were nowhere and then they always got on the podium, ending
up with a win in China”.
In the end, he said that Ferrari has to show its clear picture on the course and beat the current Formula 1 winner in the Turkey race that starts on the 8th of May, 2011.
