Alonso Doesn't Need Help from Rivals for 2010 Title
Meaning he doesn't need the drivers in front of him to drop out of the race or experience engine failures or any other related incidents, as he is confident that his car can do the job very well in the upcoming events.
“We can do it on our own. We need consistent races. If it had been a normal race in Valencia and Silverstone, then maybe I would have the points I am behind now and maybe leading the Championship here. There are four guys in front of me, and not all of them can win,” said the Spaniard earlier today.
As it is, the Spaniard actually scored the fastest time of the first day of action on the Hockenheim Ring, sending a clear message to his competition that he means business. However, Alonso reckoned that it's not the Friday or Saturday actions that count, but what happens on Sunday.
“Maybe in one race one of them doesn't take any points, in another race maybe one of them is fifth or sixth, and so on. We just need to concentrate on our job and that will be enough because at the moment we have not capitalized enough on Sunday.”
“Although the gap between me and the leader has increased, the car is improving race by race, and now there is a possibility to be on the podium regularly. Before Valencia we had two Red Bulls in front of us, two McLarens, sometimes one Mercedes and one Renault, and we were fighting with them. Now I think we are very strong, so I have more confidence,” added the Spaniard.
