The Spaniard faces the European Grand Prix with options to overcome. Remember the last Grand Prix in Valencia with bad taste in the mouth. He believes that improvement in the last two races places them among the best. The Spanish driver Fernando Alonso (Ferrari) has declared four days before the start the European Grand Prix, at the Valencia Street Circuit, that his team has already clearly demonstrated in the last two races that has the potential to win. In a few days starts the weekend of the Grand Prix of Europe, the second race of the season which takes place in Spain. It is a very important appointment for the Scuderia Ferrari and me. It will be a new opportunity to run in front of my audience, writes Alonso in his journal on the website of the Italian team. The truth is that I haven’t been very lucky the times that this test was played at the Valencia Street Circuit, especially last year, when, despite having a very competitive car, I ended up in eighth place.
Everyone remembers of what What happened when the safety car came out, but already not worth the return to the matter, recalled Alonso. Last year, the Spanish champion was Valencia with an eighth position after a controversial departure from the safety car which gave to the fret with the work of Alonso and benefited the British Lewis Hamilton (McLaren). The exit of the safety car at Valencia, motivated by an accident at the Australian Mark Webber (Red Bull), resulted in a series of nonsense that directly influenced the performance of Alonso, who happened to be in the middle of traffic on a circuit with little chance to advance of his struggle with Hamilton for second place. I’ve always thought that bad luck and good luck are compensated at the end of the season, and perhaps this unwritten law serves also for racing.
