Formula One News » F1 – Fernando Alonso “very optimistic for the rest of the season”

Fernando Alonso who raced to victory at the 2013 Chinese grand prix, says he is “very optimistic” for the rest of the season.

“It was a fantastic race for us from the start to the end without any big problems from the car, the tyre degradation was better than expected so we managed the pace. It feels great after the retirement in Malaysia because we had some pressure to finish the race.”

“In the two races we’ve finished we have got second place and victory so our start of the 2013 season is very good. We are very optimistic for the rest of the season.”

“I think at the moment Lotus and Red Bull and Mercedes they are in the same position as us.”

“I don’t see anyone having a clear advantage. Maybe Red Bull was very dominant in Australia and in the race they were suffering a little bit deg but very fast, in Malaysia a bit more in the group and here similar to others, so let’s wait and see on the updates every car brings and we’ll see how the luck happens.”

“We expect a tough race again and I think in Bahrain we will see maybe different conditions.”

“Who knows how competitive anyone can be but definitely, as I said before, the races that we’ve finished this year the car seems to be able to be on the podium again in Bahrain.”
