Formula One News » Fernando Alonso hoping for podiums ahead of Europe Posted on 28/03/2013
Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso is looking to arrive at the European leg of the 2013 F1 season with 3 podiums, giving Ferrari a boost as they fight for the 2013 f1 world championship.
If we have a weekend with normal conditions, let’s hope we have a good qualifying and pick up good points,” he told Autosport.
“The goal is to get more than last year.
“In China and Bahrain we were ninth and seventh last year, so this year is relatively easy to improve on that, and if we arrive in Europe with three podiums it will be good for our morale.”
“I don’t think Red Bull was too impressive.
“In Australia they dominated all sessions and had a pretty spectacular pace, [in Malaysia] we knew they had problems with degradation and in fact Mercedes was fighting with them until the end.
“So I think we could have been on the podium.
“The first two races have been very unstable and we don’t really know the positions of the cars yet. We haven’t seen anyone’s potential yet in qualifying and we don’t really knew where we are.”
