Alonso happy with strategy call
- From the section Formula 1
Fernando Alonso says he is "proud" of Ferrari's decision to go for victory in the Canadian Grand Prix, despite finishing in fifth position.
Alonso had been in contention for the win and gambled on a one-stop strategy in opposition to eventual winner Lewis Hamilton's two, but states he is happy with the decision to go for broke even though he admits it "didn't work".
Alonso now lies second in the driver's championship behind Hamilton, with reigning world champion Sebastian Vettel a further point behind.
