– The Spanish Formula 1 driver Fernando Alonso (Ferrari) has decided to be optimistic after a forgettable British Grand Prix where he ended in fourteenth place and said “the World Cup is too long” and he’ll “never give up.”
“We’re right in the middle of the championship. All the points we’ve lost so far is because we have not done things as well as others in the first half. We therefore have to improve in the second half, we just need one more point than the rivals. The World Cup is long and we will never give up “, stated Alonso after the race.
As to what happened at Silverstone, Ferrari complained that he had to “once again endure a bad race from the start”. Then the race was “complicated by traffic” even with a penalty for overtaking Robert Kubica who left him no choice.
“After the ‘drive through’ he was in 17 or 18 position. I tried to fight and have fun. I knew that ontaining points was impossible and I just wanted to enjoy the race,” said Alonso, who did not want to dispute the penalty he received. “I accept everything that the FIA decides, they are the referees and I accept it. The next time we have to do better,” he said resigned.
