Formula One News » F1 2013 – Monaco Grand Prix: No clear idea of pecking order says Alonso Posted on 24/05/2013
Fernando Alonso who put in a strong showing during the two Monaco Grand Prix practice sessions says there is still no clear idea of who’s out front, ahead of the Monaco Grand Prix.
“It’s always nice driving at Monaco, even if it’s very demanding, because here more than anywhere, you need to do a lot of running to adapt to the track and, in more general terms, get used to a very special race,”
“I am pleased that we managed to get through all our planned programme today, which can’t always be taken for granted here as anything can happen,”
“Even if the feelings are positive and we got through the day without any problems whatsoever, we still don’t have a clear idea of the pecking order in the field,”
“We will have to wait a bit to see where all our rivals really are, because here too, until Saturday, no one pushes a hundred percent: the barriers constitute too high a threat to take risks in the first free practice sessions,”
“There’s not much time to do a tyre comparison here, we did only one and the results didn’t throw up any surprises: the Super Softs are a bit quicker and degrade more. All that remains now is to spend all the available time analysing the data we have gathered to try and find the best strategy for qualifying and the race.”
