|here is a very nice interview of Fernando Alonso for GQ magazine in November in which he engages in open heart .|
character: "I am aware of being a man with a character to the old, traditional. I'm quite unusual for my generation because I grow and defends the values related to my past, my land, my family."
values "have courage means taking responsibility when you have to introduce yourself to people who have as much work for you to be in the best possible conditions. then you get on the car and you say: Now there are more excuses that hold, we must do a perfect lap. in life it happens often. it happened when my family has sacrificed to give me opportunities. therefore when I say I give great importance to the tradition I mean that I give a real value to words like honor, duty and respect. "
raquel : "i feel pretty good about my relationship. I try to do my best, we try both. for now we do not intend to have children but may be soon. I have a niece one year old, Maria , and for now it's enough for me. I think when a family is a family and a sense of family is deeply rooted in me. "
feelings: "I can not express my feelings. I am not able to show with actions. I think it affects raquel a lot and not just her. I try to explain it and I think it comes from my father. He loves me with all his heart but he never took me in his arms even when he saw me in trouble but a glance was enough to understand us.
Money: "I have no personal plane. I have a boat like bcp other drivers. I do not give importance to these things. I know it means having privileges. Money is important and I agree but it is better to have more normal and strong values . "
* The kitchen: "My father taught me. He was preparing the meal because my mother worked so I thought it was normal to me too. Well in my studies I took the kitchen as an option for three years. "
magic: "a passion that comes from my grandfather. holidays, after eating, we always played cards. it was ridden with me, he always tips and I was
| fascinated by this inexplicable thing . I was happy. I was doing magic to see the reaction of stunned people. surprise, joy. "|
Cycling: "I looked at the stage of Tour de France, the Vuelta and Giro . have always loved cycling and now I train in this sport. I'd like to create a real team .
|The 4 in :|
*Fernando Alonso: steadily increasing since the gp monza Alonso has made a very successful operation on Sunday by winning the first GP of Korea, ran under hellish conditions, and taking the drivers championship lead with 11pts ahead of Webber .The Spaniard is more than ever a favorite for the title.
*Lewis Hamilton: After several unsuccessful hamilton gp found the podium and puts 3rd in the drivers' standings. However we can note that mclaren did not really was able to worry about Red Bull and Ferrari this Weekend .
*Felipe Massa: Brazilian driver finally found the podium and clears his last two rather poor results also offering valuable points for Ferrari in the constructors' championship .
*michael schumacher: since returning to competition this 4th place is by far his best result in a race well run smoothly. In addition he offers a lot of points to mercedes to keep the 4th place in the constructor championship .
The 2 out :
*Mark Webber: Red Bull driver has blown his last joker in Korea with a personal error that caused his abandonement. Now with Alonso 11pts, new leader, the title is not lost but no errors are allowed.
*Sebastian Vettel: with the pole and leading the race, Vettel was overtaken by Alonso and Hamilton and then gave up on engine failure. Now Alonso has 25pts and at 14pts from his teammate the title is not over again but there are no room for error.
|* The duo Jacques Villeneuve- durango decided to pause their project to buy an F1 team to devote himself to NASCAR. * The format of the weekend gp could increase from currently 3 days to 2 days with qualifying on Sunday just before the race and the free practice on Saturday.However christian horner think we should keep the current three days but do scrutineering on Friday to avoid bringing teams from Wednesday . * Peter Sauber, team boss namesake, deplored and strongly criticized behavior "very unsporting" on behalf of the Scuderia Ferrari and McLaren Mercedes Grand Prix in South Korea.These images have indeed escaped anyone, relayed live on television worldwide. At the time of abandonment of Sebastian Vettel on mechanical failure, on the 45th lap, we could see in succession the Ferrari garage and then leave McLaren Mercedes for joy.|
