He’s the toughest guy out there and he is also the cleverest. He knows what to do and after years at Ferrari he has settled in, knows how to be consistent and has kept the team going forward step by step. Red Bull have technically caught up too, but all things considered I see Alonso as the most complete driver.
Jenson Button won the thrilling Australian Grand Prix ahead of Robert Kubica and Felipe Massa. Button made an early gamble to opt for dry tyres on a damp track which turned out to be a decisive moment of his first win for Mclaren. Alonso came 4th after dropping to 22nd on first lap. Michael Schumacher managed to grab the last point on the last lap.
Alonso leads Ferrari one two in Bahrain. Alonso wins the Bahrain Grand Prix on his debut for Ferrari while Massa settled for second place after temperature problems in his cockpit. Michael Schumacher came home 6th on his return to F1
Australian Grand Prix posts another $40 million loss in 2009. The 2008 Grand Prix also suffered a record $40 million loss, funded by the Victorian Government.
I have raced karts since I was three years old. In the last 24 years I have been fine with all of my teams, except for one. It was the same team that had problems with Senna, Prost, Raikkonen and Montoya. Perhaps the problem is with the team rather than with the driver.
I admit that one day I would very much like to be with Ferrari. It’s the best team in the history of Formula One, and it is clear that those who go with them, are part of history.
