FORMULA 1 SEASON KICKS OFF | ALONSO 4TH - ALGUERSUAR 23RD

The Formula 1 season kicked off in Melbourne Australia with Current World Champion Sebastian Vettel starting as he finished last season; untouchable & winning the Australian GP 2011. Englishman Lewis Hamilton came in second & the surprise was Petrov with his third.

However, although I congratulate the winners, the main concern here for obvious reasons is to describe how our Spanish Sportsmen & Formula 1 drivers – Fernando Alonso & Jaime Alguersuar – faired in the race.


Two time World Champion & Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso finished fourth & nearly managed to overtake third placed Petrov in a stunning last part of the race. The Spaniard admitted in the post race press conference that his main big mistake was at the start where he was 5th & due to “traffic” problems made a “wrong” situation decision that put him behind the “8 ball” for the rest of the race. The Spaniard then managed to maintain his position, get into 4th  & nearly finished on the podium.


The other Spaniard Jaime Alguersuar finished 23rd after he collided with another car at the start that forced him into boxes which made it difficult to gain the lost time & places for points.


Next race: the Malaysian GP.
