Fernando Alonso says second place in the first race of the season is a fantastic result for Ferrari, as the form of the team from Maranello is better than last year.
Among other stops, the Spaniard managed to overtake teammate Felipe Masso and Red Bull rival Sebastian Vettl, and was twelve seconds behind the winner Raikkonen in the end.
“Behind us is a fantastic race as we fought to win. I’m a little disappointed we didn’t manage to win, but Kimi was fantastic today, as was Lotus. We have to congratulate them for a wonderful race.
The race was not easy. I had some crowds, but we are very happy after a difficult start to last season. This time we are in a different position. We are very optimistic, because the car is behaving very well, and we have a very interesting season ahead of us. ”
Alonso is seven points behind Raikkonen ahead of the Malaysian Grand Prix next weekend, but has a three-point lead over Sebastian Vettl.
