Alonso hoping for 'luck' and points

Alonso hoping for 'luck' and points

Fernando Alonso insists he'll still be gunning for points in Monaco despite starting the grand prix from the pit lane.

Alonso crashed his F10 during Saturday's final practice session, causing "excessive" damage to the car that meant his chassis would have to be changed.

The duration of the repairs meant he was not able to take part in qualifying and will have to start Sunday's 78-lap race from the pit lane.

"These things happen and you can't do anything about it," Alonso said of his accident, which he admitted in the immediate aftermath was entirely his fault.

Alonso, though, insists he will still fight against the odds and try to claim a top-ten finish.

"We'll see. It's difficult to start from last place in Monaco but it's a long race and in 2006 Schumacher started last and finished in fifth so tomorrow the goal is to score some points.

"We'll see if we are that lucky."
