Blurred thinking leads to sinking feeling at inconsistent Ferrari
As Fernando Alonso prepares for his transfer, long rumoured and announcedtoday yesterday, from the Renault team to Ferrari in time for next season, the Spanish driver could be forgiven for wondering what he has got himself into. On the face of it, the world champion of 2005 and 2006 is leaving a team that, although almost destroyed by the recent scandal that led to Flavio Briatore’s departure, can still produce a car capable of carrying him to a solid third place in last week’s Singapore grand prix.
The cars of the outfit he is joining, by contrast, qualified 13th and 15th on the street circuit and went on to finish the race in 10th and 13th places, virtually unnoticed.
The Scuderia Ferrari can be grateful for the spate of headlines currently generated by Formula One.
