Alonso: “At last the year is over, I hope everything returns to normal”

Spaniard Fernando Alonso, seventeenth in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix, the last race of the 2015 Formula One World Championship, the worst in the entire history of McLaren, expressed his joy at the Yas Marina circuit because “the year is finally over “, Hoping that” everything returns to normal. “
The Asturian double world champion -in 2005 and 2006, with Renault-, winner of 32 Grand Prix, finished the World Championship seventeenth, with eleven points, after leaving eight times, in a season that for him was a real nightmare.
“The year is finally over and let’s see if everything returns to normal,” Alonso told Antena 3 television channel this Sunday in Abu Dhabi.
«Yesterday we suffered a puncture (which meant he was eliminated in the first round -Q1- of qualifying) and today we went well, but once you start well, you are touched from behind, so I have only done the whole race from behind », It indicated.
Asked about what he thought about the sanction he received (a ‘drive through’), since when he was touched -by the Sauber of Brazilian Felipe Nasr- in turn he collided with the Lotus of the Venezuelan Pastor Maldonado, Alonso indicated that «they are things of the FIA ​​(International Automobile Federation) »
«They are things of the FIA, right? We saw the half-empty stands on this circuit and in almost all circuits, there are championships that are overtaking us on the right, there is the WEC (World Endurance Championship), even MotoGP, and then We want the cars to make more noise, but I think that is not that, what you have to have is a bit of common sense, “said Alonso this Sunday at the Yas Marina circuit.
“The race became more of a practice for me and I hope we have managed to gather useful information for the winter, although I also had to be aware of managing the tires and fuel,” said the Oviedo, in statements that his team later released .
“During the race, I told my engineers, ‘Guys, let’s try pushing’ as we wanted to test the supersofts with low fuel load, and it worked well,” said Fernando.
“My preparations for 2016 start almost immediately: next week I have the seat test and simulator sessions. I am optimistic that we can make good progress, “added Alonso.
