Alonso: Renault Is Far Behind

February 25, 2008 at 3:02 am Leave a comment

After two championships with Renault, Fernando Alonso decided that it would be good to join McLaren.  Unfortunately, he was paired with a rookie driver who is talented enough to lead the drivers’ championship most of the way.

The relationship between McLaren and Alonso ended with the Spaniard leaving the team prematurely and joining Renault.  The two-time world champion is now back with the team that gave him his two titles.

Alonso though seems to be unimpressed by the team’s car saying that they are not yet fast enough to take on the likes of Ferrari and McLaren.  He went on to say that BMW Sauber is the team to watch as it is probably just a tad slower than McLaren.

The Spaniard said that Renault is not even close to catching up with BMW Sauber.  It is clear that Alonso is still not happy where he is.  The Spaniard expressed his willingness to join Ferrari but the Italian team’s stable is still full and it seems that Kimi and Massa will be with Ferrari for the foreseeable future.

Alonso said that it would be dreaming to think of Renault competing for a podium finish in the first race of the season, the Australian Grand Prix.  He said that they are currently at par with teams like Red Bull and Williams.

Neither Renault nor BMW Sauber has reacted to these statements made by the Spaniard.  We will soon find out if Alonso is just joking or they are indeed no match for Ferrari, McLaren, and even BMW Sauber.

Maybe the Spaniard is just saying all this so that he will not be compared to his former teammate Lewis Hamilton when the season gets underway.
