Exciting days ahead

May 9, 2012 · Posted by Fernando Alonso

Here we are, on the eve of my home race, the Spanish Grand Prix. It’s always a special event for me, because racing in front of my fans has always been a unique feeling. This topic and my relationship with the fans is something you can find out more about exclusively in the sixth edition of the Scuderia Ferrari Racing News at and, as many of you have been able to read, in the answers I have posted to my followers on @alo_oficial.

On the subject of excitement, yesterday was a special day at Maranello. It was the thirtieth anniversary of the death of Gilles Villeneuve and Ferrari chose to commemorate it by inviting his son Jacques to drive the 312 T4, the car that his father drove during the 1979 season. Gilles is a legendary figure for everyone, in Maranello and around the world and I think it must have been incredible for Jacques to drive this fantastic car. What I know of the father came only through films and obviously, the one I remember best is the duel he had with Arnoux at Dijon, when he was driving the very same car that was on track yesterday. Unfortunately, these days, we no longer see this sort of fight because there are more difficulties to deal with: the cars are now dominated by aerodynamics and those sorts of passing moves are no longer possible. On top of that, there was definitely more respect then than there is now between us drivers, partly because they knew that, in those cars, they were risking their lives. I don’t want to say that today things are done incorrectly, but I believe there is not that mutual respect, at least not from everyone, that there was back then. It’s a problem that goes back a long way, to the junior categories and I think the time has come to try and get it back. I think Jacques was happy to be here in Maranello yesterday: for the first time, he was able to put on a red race suit with the Ferrari badge and his name sewn on above it. We are friends and it was nice to see him again. We were team-mates, even if just for very few races in 2004 and I get on well with him. He is very professional and very sincere. Yesterday was also the opportunity to plug a gap in my collection of helmets from my team-mates, as Jacques gave me one which dated back to the season he drove for Sauber.

It was nice to see so many mechanics from that time, clearly happy to be back on track watching a Villeneuve. It was yet another episode that made me understand how special is Ferrari’s history, the history of a team with an incredible tradition, but that always looks to the future.

The immediate future means the Spanish Grand Prix. In Montmelo, we will be counting on making a step forward, but we won’t know until Saturday if we have and if so, how big a step it is. We have updates on the F2012, some of which we tested in Mugello last week and others which we will try out on Friday in free practice. Clearly, having limited the damage in the first four races this year, we must turn things around. Having said that, it’s not the case that if we are not on pole in Barcelona then it’s the end of the world… The important thing is to make progress, reducing the gap as much as possible, first this weekend, then again in Monaco and after that, in Montreal, Valencia, Silverstone…The season is very long, with sixteen races to go, the same number that constituted the entire calendar back in 2003. We must continue to work day and night, just as did Gilles’ mechanics, whom I met at the track yesterday and just as our guys do today. I will be flying with them to Barcelona this afternoon. With the same spirit of wanting to win and being prepared to fight with all one’s strength to achieve that, which is the spirit that has driven me ever since I was a kid racing karts.

    Hi sweetie Yes, this will be a very exciting weekend for you, with all of the Spanish people there to support you. You have the support of people all over the world, but I guess your home and your people are most important to you. I hope you feel the support and love we all have for you. It must be a wonderful feeling. My weekend will be very busy, our Toronto Rock Lacross team is in the final again on Saturday, we are defending our championship, one game to decide it. It will be nailbiting for sure, but as I am very close to a member of the team, I will be there for him either way. I hope this weekend goes wonderful for you as well, in everything on and off the track. I will be there, even if you won't see me. My heart and soul are with you, same thing, either way. I love reading your tweets, it just proves what I have always felt, you are a very special person, someone I would love to know. Maybe one day, I will meet you, and I will look into those eyes of yours, and know that you are looking at mine at the same time, OOHH, I think I could die in that moment, because life just couldn't get any better than that. Remember always, Love you lots Kim (Canada)

    Good luck for Barcelona Fernando, I hope the team with you and Felipe finally can fight for a victory or even a pole position. I'm glad that you got another helmet for your collection. lupe.

    Hola Fernando...another great insight into your week, thank you. All the best for this weekend hombre! Vamos Alonso!!

    Alonso, I have the full confidence in you after I have the read the article about the Mugello testing session. I am also happy to hear that from you. Hope to see you in pits/your garage soon. William Tho from Singapore wish you have a good and memorable race in front at your home race. Pray hard for you and the team.

    Wishing you a very sucessful weekend. I hope the updates are a big step forward and we can hope for lots more podiums and race wins - you all work so hard and really deserve it. I am really enjoying following you on twitter etc (which I access through your website)and really appreciate that you make time for us in this way - you have made me laugh quite a few times! I agree with you on the issue of needing to get the respect between drivers back and needing to start young. My son races in karting and we have always taught him to have this respect - when the whole grid has it too, the quality of the racing is much better and more enjoyable to watch (and less expensive! lol).:) X

    Hi Nano...Nice to hear from you again. We are very excited to read your messages or photos on your twitter also facebook everyday. Thanks for taking so much time to do it, as you are very busy..xoxo.. Ok, finally the 2nd part of season is about to start. How exciting & how important this race will be. It's your home Grand Prix, also we couldn't wait to see how all those update works. Keep our fingers crossed, you & your boy F2012 will be the leader on the track all the way. We believe that you and all your team members are ready for the battle. The game is on and we know you will nail it. Avanti#ALO..xoxoxoxo

    Hi Fernando! It was very interesting to read your answers to the question of your followers in Twitter! Also thanks for this interesting post in your blog! And good luck in home race!!! I think that you will show a fantastic result!!!
  • Wednesday, 9 May 2012 09:02 by Carlos
    Alo! There's nothing more that I would like to see in a "modern" F1 race than some exciting lead changes.... I think these days [engines and aerodynamics aside] races are won at the start or in the pits. Hopefully I live to see the day when all F1 drivers have the same car and a race become more about the drivers skills rather than the car (although I bet this would frustrate the constructors). Good luck in Catalunia! I'll be watching!
  • Wednesday, 9 May 2012 09:39 by Balazs Szabo
    Fernando! This track should suit our car the most. The F2012 is strong through the fast corners and handle the tyres well at tracks where lateral forces are dominant. I lav all your pictures, you have been my idol for long years and I always considered you as a hero. Now, I know you are a simple human on weekdays. Ferrari has given me so much motivation and inspiration for my life, I keep on praying for a real turn around to the season!
  • Thursday, 10 May 2012 01:22 by Dean Scanlon
    Very nice story about real history with Ferrari and Villeneuve (A magnifcent driver). Please just start winning I hate watching Vettel Winning! Ferrari all the way!! Alonso Start winning!! regards, Dean, Ireland

    Best of luck Fernando, hope you will enjoy your home GP and hopefully the updates on the F2012 will give you a good result. I know I'll be chanting with the rest of the Spanish crowd in support for you! Forza Ferrari!!

    Hola, Matador! I hope the updates on the F2012 can bring you to victory, best of luck!

    Dear Mr.Alonso,Nando, I am a fan of yours sinds you came in F1.I have two children almost your age and they have fun seeing their mam as a F1 fan.For me you are the best at this moment.I hope for you that the car will be better now and that this WE will be the switch for chances to the championship. I beleave also in the power of numbers.Number 5(your ranking number)is not a good number for you.Put also your personal numbers on your bolide (2-7-9)2+7 = 9/ 9+9 = 18/ 1+9 = 9 . Nine is the number of perfection. Try to stay concentrated this WE( not so simple in Spain!) Be one with the car and become "numéro uno" God bless you. succes ! a racemum.

This is one of our favourite track, you won twice also have great records here previously. We are very looking forward to celebrate another victory on Sunday.

  • Saturday, 26 May 2012 01:40 by Luisa Cambras
    Hola Ferito ... a VERY special Monaco helmet indeed with the ‘Asturias Angels’ to help you fly with winged speed to the winning line ... the race is a gamble ... the dice have been thrown ... but to date you’ve excelled and your points have grown ... the roulette wheel is spinning and MY bet is on red ... RED NUMBER ONE cos you’ll get the job done ... here in ‘06&7 you were dealt two aces but now you must go for the ‘prial’ ... with your sleight-of-hand and slick moves it won’t prove a trial ... think 86 points ... think white ... think gold … then go out there and be ever so bold ... I will blow you some kisses FOR LUCK throughout mi campeon ... volar con los ángeles mi amor al hombre y have no fear for you ‘WILL defeat the enemy’!! xxxxxxx
  • Saturday, 26 May 2012 03:04 by FasterEvaNano
    Hi Nano...How exciting & interesting the Qualifying session. We never know until the end. You finished the 6th fastest, but will start on the 5th grid tomorrow. I think that's a very good sign. 5 is the most lucky number this weekend, We believe in you will fight very hard to gain lots of points and break your record on this track. Keep calm & keep positive, as you said:"Piano piano si arriva lontano.." Forza Ferrari, Forza Fernando...Love you...xoxoxoxoxo
  • Saturday, 26 May 2012 03:08 by Luisa Cambras
    Bonjour again Ferito … ohh more surprising Q3 results with you sitting 6th on the grid behind four seasoned drivers (most of who will undoubtedly make it VERY difficult for you to get past them on the track?) and the French rookie Grosjean … but remember mi querido that ANYTHING can happen during the race and it’s NOT going to be an impossible feat for you to win it (or at least nab a podium?) …remember too that: ‘it’s not the cards you’re dealt BUT how you play the game’ … buena suerte sweetie X

  • Sunday, 10 Jun 2012 08:56 by FasterEvaNano
    Hi Nano...We are very very PROUD of you!!! Taking the risk, unfortunately didn't work out with one stop strategy, but you did so well and fought very hard. You gave it all, we couldn't ask you any more. In positive side, we can see the good pace on F2012, all the upgrade have worked well. We now are looking forward to the next round. Keep head up & keep positive, we are with you no matter what.. Forza Fernando... Love you..xoxoxoxoxo ( time for the bed, 5.57am Monday )
  • Monday, 11 Jun 2012 02:53 by Luisa Cambras
    Hola Ferito ... ohh sweetie you were doing so well in the early stages of the race BUT you can’t win ‘em all mi carino and even though it was a brave (but somewhat risky?) gamble by your team to opt for a one-stop strategy ... sadly towards the end it crippled your filly and she could only limp home to the winning post in 5th ... nevertheless 10-points is NOT to be sneezed at and you’re only trailing by 2-points on the leader board ... with 13 more races ahead and if F1 continues with its current climate of ‘unpredictability’ WHO KNOWS what’s going to happen between now and November 25th?!? SO stay positive and keep your pecker up mi campeon for your home crowd will soon be cheering you on at the Circuito Urbano Valencia xxxxxxx
  • Wednesday, 20 Jun 2012 12:28 by FasterEvaNano
    Hi Nano...Finally, your 2nd home Grand Prix is around the corner, we are very looking forward to watch this race. With only one DRS zone and hardly overtaking on this track, we hope you will have a great Qualifying, maybe take the POLE position??!!! We feel very positive with all the upgrade, also with all your great supporters in the circuit, we know you will do another remarkable jobs to return to the championship leader board and make us fans #SuperHappy. Keep head up, keep smiling and keep calm. Wishing you and team all the very best this weekend.. Forza #ValenciaALO Love you..xoxoxo

There is one thing you need to know that we believe in you and team will deliver the best to gain as many as points in your home Grand prix. Never say never, still have the chance to fight for the podium, why not..!!! Keep head up, keep focus and keep fighting. We are here supporting you all the way. Forza... AvantiFernando ..

  • Saturday, 23 Jun 2012 03:53 by Luisa Cambras
    Hola Ferito ... from the air she looks like a legless Picasso ‘duck’ but tomorrow WILL your Valencian circuito bring you luck ... YES if you can make a cracking start from 11th down her back you’ll gain some places on the track ... then a charge towards the curve of her beak and some DRS along her belly to fairly streak ... don’t ruffle her feathers as you sail across her tail or she’ll quack at you and slow like a snail ... 57 HOT LAPS mi campeon (that’s temperature AND speed) cos 25-points on the board is what you need ... just pipped to the post last year so this time you must notch it up a gear ... if anyone can conserve their tyres while negotiating all those corners and curves YOU can mi carino so with the right strategy you’re in with a good chance … buena suerte sweetie and whatever happens enjoy the race! xxxxxxx PS: Ooh what a lot of ‘sport’ I have to watch this weekend ... let’s hope your team win their match against France tonight and that you (and I) will be celebrating a DOUBLE Spanish celebration tomorrow AFTER you win the race (or at least a podium?) … saw Jorge brilliantly make HIS way to the top podium last time out too ... viva Espana!!

    Fernando, Thank you very much for Valencias' race. That's why I'm in love with Formula 1 since I was I child. I'm very proud to see always a Spanish "boy" in the top of F1. Come on!!!! You have Champion's heart, that is something you can´t learn. you was born with it. Good Luck and always the best for "The Best" (I mean "You").
  • Monday, 25 Jun 2012 04:44 by Luisa Cambras
    Hola Ferito ... well your Valencian circuito certainly DID bring you some well-deserved luck this year mi carino BUT that’s doesn’t detract from the fact that YOU drove a ‘fantastica’ race ... it was like ‘watching a master perfecting his craft’ ... tenaciously scything your way through the field ... brave, feisty and (move over & get out of my way) FAST ... those weren’t hot laps mi carino they were WHITE HOT ... all the other drivers seemed to be on fire too but compared to you they could only resemble orange-hued ‘embers’ ... just riveting and awe-inspiring to behold and yet another wonderful achievement (it obviously meant a LOT to you being on the top podium at your home venue) ... that’s TWO wins under your belt now sweetie and 20-points ahead of the rest so enjoy your break and re-charge your batteries because Silverstone is the next ‘box to be ticked’ ... sending you a huge congratulatory hug & kiss to say ‘well done’ mi campeon X
  • Tuesday, 26 Jun 2012 11:16 by kimcanada
    Fernando What a fantastic race this weekened! It was very exciting, you never knew what was going to happen! The fact that you won is just amazing, starting 11th and winning! Wow, great job. Just goes to prove the are the best there is, no one can compare to you. You are exactly what a champion is supposed to be. You never give up, you always give everything you have, every race. I love watching you, you are awesome and incredible, I don't think anyone can argue that fact. Have a good rest, July will be busy Love you lots Kim (Canada)

  • Monday, 2 Jul 2012 06:49 by Luisa Cambras
    Hola Ferito ... ohh last week when I saw the picture (on Twitter) of your knees I hadn’t realised that the right one was actually injured (it crossed my mind but then I remembered that it was your left knee before?) … I thought that BOTH your knees were just being ‘massaged’ or gently manipulated with that gadget to loosen them up ... obviously if I HAD known you were in pain I would have asked for some ‘healing energies’ to be sent to the injured area … BUT even though it’s better now I will still ask for the healing to be sent so that the problem doesn’t recur before the race at Silverstone (bearing in mind that you are doing all that extra training) … take care sweetie and I will be in touch soon xxxxxxx
  • Thursday, 5 Jul 2012 05:21 by FasterEvaNano
    Hi Nano...We would like to say "BIG THANK" to you again of the brilliant race you gave us in Valencia, making our days really happy. You are really incredible. xoxoxo And now, you are back in Silverstone. We still have a very great memory of the victory in 2011. We are very looking forward to see you take another WIN.

    Hola Ferito ... ooh it’s almost time for the race at Hockenheim and another chance for YOU to shine ... so on with your red suit, helmet & boots to gear up for the Sunday crowd’s cheering and hoots ... will it be a wet race or will it be dry ... sunny and bright or rainclouds in the sky ... it matters NOT cos whatever the weather you won’t be deterred as you’re bound to come home either 1st, 2nd or 3rd … just pipped to the post last time out but STILL ahead where it really counts … so keep your head mi carino and keep that lead by ‘hareing’ around the Hockenheimring at flat-out speed … I will be rooting for you all the way sweetie so when the last red light turns black get into that zone and don’t look back para la victoria número tres le espera …buena suerte mi campeon xxxxxxx

    Hola Ferito ... YES YES YES you did it ... and you did it in your usual flowing and flawless style … IT being ‘victoria numero tres’ in Hockenheim after 67 laps of being hotly (and relentlessly) pursued by your rivals BUT yesterday the quarry was just too quick and astute for the predators and it was the black horse who outran them and pranced to the top podium while the red bull and silverback (gorilla?) had to be content with 2nd & 3rd ... another proud day mi campeon and I’m SO pleased for you (I knew that pink band in the sky was a good omen) ... ARE you ‘Hungry for Hungary’ now Fernando ... you will be 31-years-old next Sunday and surely the best gift you could give yourself is if you can pull-off your 31st race win on the same day to make it a double celebration ... I wouldn’t want to bet against you sweetie ... sending you a big luscious ‘well done’ kiss X

Forza Ferrari, Forza #HungaryALO Support you all the way...xoxoxoxoxo Happy Birthday to F E R N A N D O !!!!!

    Hi Nano...You had a good start, that was a very smart movement getting in front of Kimi. We can see it's not a easy race for us today, again, you just kept pushing incredibly to defend your position. Would be good to see you finish on the podium in this special day. But Fernando, your boy F2012 might not too competitive this weekend, but still had a good shape that Kimi, Webber & Jenson couldn't overtaking you. Also, you tried so hard to score as many as points to stay on top of championship leader board. This is very important and you did. We are so happy you are leading 40 points, at least now you can have a nice and a relax summer break. We will keep our head up and keep positive. We believe in you and your team will return strongly in the 2nd part of season. We will miss you very much during this break, please remember we support you all the way and proud of you more & more. Have a great celebration our birthday man, Happy Birthday Fernando... Love you.. from AUS & TWN xoxoxoxo (ps. Thanks to you & all your team members, you guys have been doing great jobs. We keep our fingers crossed for more to come.. Muchas Gracias..Avanti...)

    Hola Ferito … another great start from 6th on the grid mi carino … albeit only one position gained you did a superb job of fending off Bruno’s charge at the first corner and then getting past Kimi at the second … SO (much to my relief and excitement) after initially dropping back to 7th you were up to 5th within the first 20-seconds of the race (yey!) ... you also made short work of Sergio later on and was only a hair’s-breadth away from passing Mr Vettel as he emerged from his final pitstop …the Hungaroring is NOT the easiest of circuits to overtake on and probably not suited to your F2012 so you did REALLY well to finish 5th and get those valuable 10-points which have frog-leapt you to 40-points+ ahead of all your rivals … nice to know that you have that secure cushion for (at least) the duration of your summer vacation sweetie … ENJOY your well-earned and thoroughly deserved rest mi campeon!! xxxxxxx

    Hi Nano...How are you???? We miss you so so much. Finally it's back and we will see you return to the track very soon. We are very excited about the 2nd part of season. Knowing you are leading 40 points making us even more positive. We keep our fingers crossed, you will lead in each single race until in the end of season. Also we are looking forward to see the great team works. You couldn't fight alone, you need your team & your team-mate to support you even more than before. Of course, your fans here will support you all the way. Fernando, thanks for sharing us some photos during the break, at least we were not too bored. Have a great weekend, we believe your batteries are fully charged. Go Fighter...Forza Ferrari, Forza #SpaALO love you xoxoxoxo

    Hola Ferito ... well after your race was well and truly ‘torpedoed’ last week in Spa (through no fault of your own?) I’m pleased to see that you and your car have made a rapid recovery in time for Monza this weekend ... the two most important and positive things to focus on are that you (miraculously and by a ‘cat’s whisker’) emerged from your battered and broken car relatively unscathed so ‘senora suerte’ was truly with you mi carino AND you are still 24-points ahead of your closest contender ... it’s Round 13 and that number WON’T be unlucky for you on Sunday mi carino so wherever you find yourself on the starting grid after Q3 you must make one of your ‘Speedy Gonzales’ (like a bullet out of a gun) starts ... get ahead and STAY ahead sweetie to keep racking up those points and ENJOY the challenge ... buena suerte mi campeon xxxxxxx
