Fernando Alonso has hit back at suggestions he could up his game in the discipline of qualifying.
“Fernando needs to be pushed more on Saturday afternoons,” said the Australian.
Alonso told Brazil’s Totalrace: “It’s on Sunday that the points are given.
“But even if Saturday is not the priority, I have been the best in terms of qualifying that Felipe has had as a teammate.
“My advantage compared to him is 82 per cent,” he insisted.
“So even if Saturday is not my strongest point, in eight out of ten weekends, I’m in front of him. So I don’t think this is a problem for me,” Alonso added.
