Formula One News » Fernando Alonso believes its difficult to choose a winner Posted on 14/03/2013
Fernando Alonso believes there could be as many as 10 drivers in with a shot at winning this weekend’s Australian Grand Prix and that its difficult to know who.
“It’s difficult to know; no-one knows who can win this race at the moment,” said the Ferrari driver. “We’ll have to wait and see to answer some questions that winter testing doesn’t answer.
“I think there are top teams with a little bit of advantage, maybe it’s not the same as last year when we saw seven different winners from seven different races, it was a bit mixed on the grid.
“I think this year with the consistency in the rules I expect the five top teams to have a little advantage and to have many, many surprises in the first races.
“From these five teams I think it’s very difficult to see really after winter testing who has this extra two or three tenths that can make you win. At the moment I think it’s very close and very difficult to choose one favourite.”
“I think Mercedes, McLaren, Ferrari, Lotus and Red Bull showed some potential in different days in testing and in different parts of races last year and I think it’s difficult to choose.”
