Twenty podiums in two years with Ferrari: not bad!

November 14, 2011 · Posted by Fernando Alonso
(86)

I’m already home from the trip to Abu Dhabi which ended on a high note. Yesterday’s second place is definitely a better result than we had expected going into the weekend, but what gave me the most satisfaction was the speed we had for practically the whole race. It was a good battle with Hamilton: at some points he was quicker and at others I was. Usually, at the start of a stint, he was able to pull out a bit of a gap, but then I’d close it in the final part, especially when we were both on the Softs. In the second stint the traffic also added to this sort of elastic movement between us, but it’s hard to say which of us it affected most. Having analysed the data in last night’s debrief, it was also clearly the case that the little problem at the second pit stop did not impact on the final result: I would not have been able to get back out on track ahead of Hamilton, who was immediately quick on the Medium tyres. In fact the ability to get the most out of the tyres right from the very first lap, is one of the areas we need to work on for next year.

Bringing home a trophy from Abu Dhabi was very pleasing for me, but I’ve realised I made a statistical error, when I said that in my collection I have at least one trophy from each of the Grand Prix venues since I’ve raced in Formula 1: I’m missing one from Austria where I raced only twice, in 2001 and 2003, failing to finish on both occasions. The first time was in a Minardi, when the gearbox let me down, the second was when I was with Renault and the engine failed. Well, I’m not sure if the Austrian Grand Prix will ever return to the calendar, but if it did happen, then that would be just an extra reason to try and make it to the podium!

Still on the subject of statistics, yesterday’s podium was the twentieth of my “red” career, which means that I have managed to finish in the top three in over half the races I have driven for Ferrari. This shows that even in a year like this, which has not been so fantastic, in terms of our car’s performance, the average level is still very high. It’s not by chance that over the last eighteen years, the Scuderia has managed to win at least one Grand Prix per season. No other team can say the same and factors like this also influenced my decision to extend my contract with Ferrari for such a long time. I know many of you will think it would have been better if I could have come second in Abu Dhabi a year ago. I know it too, but there’s no point in thinking about what might have been, also because I am sure that the time will come sooner or later when we can obtain the satisfaction that has eluded us so far. I am sure that from now until 2016 there will be many more bottles of champagne for me to hand to the mechanics as I come down the steps from the podium!

    That's why I can't accept when someone says that you aren't the best driver actually. 20 podiums in 37 races, that's it? Keep pushing and in 2012, the third title will come easy. Avanti Fer, AVANTI!

    Well done Fernando! It has been a great season but it is clearly the car that has let the team down. Also Felipe has done well and he could have done much better if wasn't for Hamilton. I hope for the best for next season and bring home that 3rd Title!

    Buenos Noches Ferito and BRAVO on your lightning launch yesterday ... you certainly did dash, hare and zoom on that opening lap sweetie and by doing so you secured the 2nd podium within the first two minutes of the race (I was actually squealing out loud with excitement and delight at those crucial moments!) ... what a shame that you didn’t quite pull-off the miracle BUT you did win your ‘Abu Dhabi’ trophy and you won it BRILLIANTLY with another fine and flawless performance which just made my heart sing!! CONGRATULATIONS too on your 20th podium finish for Ferrari mi carino and please always remember that I’m immensely proud of what you’ve achieved this year (you’ve done SO WELL considering the circumstances?) ... one more race to go and perhaps an eleventh-hour miracle (2nd win) will be in store for you at Interlagos ... enjoy your brief respite dear heart before you have to fly off again to Sau Paolo ... sending a big warm hug and LOTS of besos xxxxxxx

    Hola, Fernando. Greetings, as you've got another great result and provided another great race. I think that the most obvious logical conclusion you can deduce is "Never relax, never think of result - just push as hard as you can in each race thus you will not lose everything". I don't know if I expressed this notion correctly. Anyway, I would say your driving this year is much better, than the last (2010). You reminded me 2006, when you were younger and more agressive, and you were fighting every single race. That was awesome. Please, don't change this approach to the racing. PS: congrats from my mother:-) Hopefully, you will win next year championship. (Ukraine)

    Great job Fernando, fantastic race! You are such a joy to watch, and 2nd place is amazing. I am so happy for you, but also kind of sad because there is just 1 race left for this season, but I won't think about that right now, just how great a driver you are, I don't care if the stats say Vettel is the champion, I know there is only one :) Again, great result this weekend, and remember Love you lots Biggest hugs Kim (Canada)

    To echo the thoughts of others before me. A great race from a great talent, in fact the greatest talent. You helped to transform Abu Dhabu from a possible 'bore-fest' to an event more exciting than the one next door (Ferrari World) ;) Enjoy the accolades and tributes you more than deserve every one of them.

    Hola Ferito ... can you believe that we are only ONE day away from the final race of 2011 and once again MUCH depends on the outcome of this Brazilian grand prix ... maybe not quite as much as last year for you personally but still 2nd in the WDC would be a nice coup and the reward that YOU so deserve for all the dedication and determination you’ve put in this year ... you’re a very skilful/scrupulous and ‘spirited’ racing driver mi carino and some of the sensational starts you’ve made this season have been a joy for the spectators and your fans to witness! SO just continue tomorrow in the same vein and (with a smidgen of luck) you could be taking home TWO trophies ... whatever happens sweetie you will ALWAYS BE MY CHAMPION and your No.1 fan is already counting the hours ‘til she feasts her eyes on your handsome face and that beautiful smile up on the podium tomorrow ... buena suerte mi heroe ... sending THEE biggest ‘good luck’ kiss and hug across the miles to my dearest darling delicioso little love pumpkin ... ciao bambino X PS: I won’t be able to watch the qualifying live lthis afternoon but will tape the programme and watch it later this evening (or tomorrow morning?) ... hope you manage to get near the front but if not overtaking will be easier at Interlagos (I hope?) ... enjoy your weekend sweetie xxxxxxx

Thank you very very much to you and your boy The 150º Italia , we appreciate all the hard works you have done, also all the joys and excitement you gave to us.

    Hola Ferito ... Congratulations and well done for finishing off your 10th season in Formula One with such ‘dignity in defeat’ mi carino (as always) ... y mil gracias too for being one of the few racing drivers’ who has actually made the sport worth watching every year (for ME personally) ... I think your stalwart fans have said it all in their recent messages to you ... they’ve tried to encourage and spur you on and they’ve praised your skill and appreciated your hard-fought efforts ... I particularly agree with some of their sentiments (and I quote from a couple of dozen of them): “A superb 20 podiums in 2 years with Ferrari ... I’m proud to be your fan Fernando ... this season everyone has watched your brilliant skill ... rare and unique ... you are a big fighter with heart and soul ... please never forget you have fans who love you ... we love your ‘never give up’ attitude ... you’re a great F1 driver ... your elegance, respect and competitiveness are always guaranteed ... simply magic ... awesome racing ... you are brilliant to watch and a fantastic talent ... such a joy to watch ... marvellous and keep up the excellent work ... you’re simply the best ... the greatest talent ... quite amazing ... the way you get 110% out of that Ferrari deserves a trophy on its own ... you are among one of the greatest F1 drivers I’ve ever seen in my life ... your fighting spirit is unique ... thankyou so much for all the excitement and fun you’ve provided this season ... thanks for all the bright moments you give us ... the season is over but we support you forever ... enjoy your accolades and tributes you more than deserve every one of them!!” WOW no more that I can add to that list really (except to say that I think it was worth repeating here) ... every word your fans have written about you is TRUE sweetie and more than well-deserved ... Fernando Alonso Diaz - a truly gifted racing driver with a good heart and a pure soul!! xxxxxxx

    Dear Fernando, thank you very much of all the effort in 2011. For me, you are the best and the most brilliant driver on the track this season, because you fought very hard and always do your best. My family and I were in Turkish GP in May, watching you taking the 3rd place on the podium, that was such emotion for all of us. Unfortunately, there's no GP in Turkey next year. But we will definitely support you even more in front of TV. It will be very important year for me in 2012, because I have to study very hard to go to university, I will follow your spirits " Give it all and Never ever give up ". Good luck to you and me in 2012. Wishing you and your family lot of joys together and happy new year. Your great supporter Banu from Turkey...^_^ FORZA
