Fernando Alonso celebrates 10 years in Formula 1 !
"I expected a team of legend and magic, and it was a pleasant surprise, even better than what I was waiting for . I'm in no hurry to leave. Here, I take pleasure in finishing second or even eighth or twenty-third,"
he is also back on the worst cars and also the best that had to drive during his career:
"The Renault in 2009 was the worst car i had to drive but managed to get a podium in Singapore. The cars of 2004 and 2005 were the most enjoyable. There was the war between Bridgestone and Michelin tires that allowed us to be a few seconds faster with 900 horses. Even with less aerodynamic than we had six years ago from today, we turned in 1:08 at Valencia, 1:14 cons now six seconds of difference. These cars are hard to beat."
Fernando has also revealed he almost signed with Prost GP early in his career:
"In addition to go with Minardi [in 2001], I also had an offer to go to Prost Then, maybe become a pilot essays Ferrari, or maybe not and I should return in F3000. There was no guarantee then that Renault gave me a better opportunity."
Finally when he was asked whether he planned to lead a team when deciding Formula 1, Fernando said: "Today I would say no, because what I want is to drive. But it will be difficult to leave F1 one day because I drove my entire life. I think I'd rather spend my weekends having fun in rather than a kart to another job"
Fernando also said he would rather help young drivers to integrate f1. But don't worry it's not for now !
