Australia GP : Alonso & Massa Sunday quotes
*Fernando Alonso: "we can say that we started this season on the right foot, we were immediately in fight with the best. It is encouraging to see that we have made the best of a weekend full of unknowns, both in qualifying and in race. I think the three stops strategy was good in view of degradation that we had, it would have been impossible to make one less.We are finishing before Red Bull which either is already as a victory even if we know that despite the outcome of the race, they are faster. Now we can expect a weekend with a very changing weather that gives a lot of stress for cars from a mechanical point of view and on the physical side for the drivers. We can respond calmly after this good result."
*Felipe Massa: "it is really a very positive start to the season because I have often been in difficulty here in Melbourne but we have shown that the car is competitive with a good pace in the race.The work done during winter testing was OK. In regards to my race, I had a good start, I attacked from the start of the race and I was able to fight for the top places.Maybe if we had advanced my second stop as was the case for Alonso, I could sign the podium but I am still very happy with my result. Certainly, we have a good pace but we must analyse all details to improve our car."
