Alonso happy with ‘damage limitation’

March 18th, 2012 / betfred

Fernando Alonso ( 20/1 World Drivers’ Championship Outright ) has admitted that it was a ‘tough weekend’ for Ferrari but was more than happy with his finish after coming home fifth in the first race of the season, the Australian Grand Prix . Alonso and team-mate Felipe Massa appeared to be struggling with the handling of the F2012 car and could only qualify in 12th and 16th place on the grid. However, the Spaniard put the previous troubles of the week behind him to come home in fifth place to secure an opening 10 points for the season. “Obviously I’m very happy with the result. I think it was damage limitation, let’s say, in terms of the number of points we get from this weekend,” Alonso said. “It was a tough weekend from Friday and qualifying both cars out of Q3 was not the best result for us. “Then in the race we did a good start and a good strategy and to finish fifth behind the two McLarens and Red Bulls is for sure the best news from the weekend in terms of the team. “Ferrari is Ferrari – there are cars that are maybe quicker than us now, but it’s like when Manchester United or Chelsea play one bad game but they still win 1-0.” McLaren (8/11 favourites Constructors’ Championship outright ) enjoyed a one-three finish to open up an early 10-point lead in the Constructors’ Championship over Red Bull (6/4), who came home second and fourth, with Ferrari (20/1) currently occupying fourth place behind Sauber (250/1), who had two finishers in the points.
