Alonso not playing blame game

Alonso not playing blame game

Fernando Alonso was pretty pragmatic after Ferrari's qualifying disaster at Silverstone on Saturday.

Having been there or thereabouts during Friday's two practice sessions in the dry, the Italian outfit looked set for a decent qualifying session, but it turned into a poor afternoon for the team.

With the rain falling steadily during the latter stages of Q1, Alonso lost control of his car and spun at Luffeld, failing to make it into Q2. His team-mate Kimi Raikkonen also crashed out in Q1.

However, two-time World Champion Alonso was philosophical after Saturday's qualifying.

"It happens some times in this weather," he told BBC Sport. "Thirty seconds before or later you'd have the right tyre in the right moment and you'd be in the hero or the mistake part.

"Here in the compound there are two Ferrari drivers and two Williams so we there was something we definitely did wrong compared to the other teams.

"We need to study what happened but I don't think there was nothing we could do differently. After the qualifying it is easy to do but in the moment it isn't very clear.

"We will start at the back, we will have some overtaking to do and we'll enjoy."
