Alonso was somewhat indifferent to his position on the grid after Saturday’s action in which he posted a time of 1.45.819. The time was just shy of 1.6 seconds behind the pole-sitter, Lewis Hamilton. Instead of eyeing a podium position, Alonso spoke of the uncertain reliability of cars for this season.

“The car has been well balanced all weekend in all conditions. We have had zero problems so far.”

Driving in the wet ‘not fun’

“Well, today was not fun first of all. [It was the] First time in wet conditions with this 2014 car. [We’ve had] Zero practice and then it is raining in Q2. So that’s probably not fun at all.

“Last year we started with a car at 95 per cent. We found a total performance of 5 per cent for the rest of the year. This year everybody is starting at 60 per cent because the cars are too new for everybody so many things can improve for everybody, not only for us.”

Alonso begins his charge for a third drivers’ championship when the season starts tomorrow in Melbourne.
