Alonso's grid.

How does Fernando Alonso see the relative strength of the 10 Formula 1 teams after the final tests before the start of the 2009 season?
Spain's La Sexta asked the two time champion to place teams on a grind, based on the strength of the cars from his prospective. The answer was surprising.

Alonso goes on to say that, if last year these might have been a 8/10th difference between first and fifth, this year there is maybe a 2/10th second gap between the first and the eighth team so things are much more volatile. Interesting.



  1. afaict, alonso's prediction is:
    bgp 1
    bmw 2
    ferrari 3
    toyota 4
    renault 5
    red bull 6
    mclaren 7
    williams 8
    STR 9
    force india 10

    did i get any out of order?

  2. Could someone translate his words after the grid-selection?

  3. you have his words translated under the video...;)

    also, he said that is too difficult to make predictions in pre-season

    sorry about my poor english level....
