Alonso And Ferrari Fired Up Following Poor Results
Fernando Alonso has declared himself and his team to be fired-up and ready to fight for race wins and ultimately the world championship as F1 hits Germany.
The Spaniard has been in commading positions to score big points in the last two races, but run ins with the FIA and safety cars have led him not to score a single point. Despite this, and the deficit to the top, Alonso believes he can still win the title.
“I’ve been in Maranello four days last week working with the team,” Alonso said in a video interview for Ferrari’s website.
“Overall I felt a very good atmosphere in the team. All the guys in Maranello are very, very focused on fighting for this championship.
“After these two bad races people are even more motivated than before because they feel we deserve a good race finally.”
“We saw this year if you have two or three bad races or two or three good races, it can change the picture of the championship completely,” Alonso said.
“We arrive [in Germany] after two bad races with not many points. I think before long we will arrive at a good moment. We need to take the maximum from our car, do two or three podiums in a row, and I’m sure with the new points system we can be in the fight for the championship very soon.”
