Alonso’s best shot

The Northern Advocate - - Sport -

Two-time cham­pion Fer­nando Alonso is al­most in re­tire­ment mode, but doesn’t think it is time to re­lax just yet. The Span­ish driver said he could score the last points of his 17-year ca­reer at the Brazil­ian Grand Prix on Mon­day. The 37-year-old be­lieves the In­ter­la­gos cir­cuit is more suited to his McLaren than Abu Dhabi, where the sea­son ends on No­vem­ber 25. “If we want to score points, this is the chance for us,” said Alonso, who will quit F1 at the end of the cam­paign. “We have some un­cer­tain weather for the week­end com­ing. Maybe that gives us more pos­si­bil­i­ties.”
