Formula One News » Alonso satisfied with “win” over red bull racing

Fernando Alonso who finished the Australian grand prix in second place says it “tastes like a win” over red bull, but says red bull is still the quickest team out there.

“Finishing ahead of the Red Bull tastes like a win, even if we know that despite the race result, they are still the quickest,” Fernando Alonso said.

“Now we can expect another weekend (in Malaysia) with very changeable weather and one that also puts a lot of stress on the cars from a mechanical point of view and on the drivers, from a physical one.”

“But we can tackle it calmly on the back of this good result.”

“We can claim to have started this season on the right foot, immediately in the fight with the best, Along with the results from winter testing, it is a very encouraging sign that we managed to get the most out of a weekend that was full of unknown factors, both in qualifying and the race.”

“I think the three-stop strategy was the right one: with the tyre degradation we had, it would have been impossible to manage on one less, and bringing forward the second one by a few laps meant I was able to pass Vettel and Adrian Sutil.”
