Fernando Alonso: Red Bull are sore losers
Wednesday 22 May 2013
Red Bull sound like sore losers for complaining about the Formula One tyres, Ferrari's Fernando Alonso has suggested. The Spaniard, winner in China and Barcelona, said at the Monaco Grand Prix that it was up to the champions to explain their comments but offered a theory of his own anyway.
"We know that Barcelona was a good race for us and not so good for some of our competitors," he said. "Some of these competitors claim to have a super car but the last three pole positions were for another car, when the tyres were new.
"It sometimes happens when you win too easily for some years, it's difficult to lose some races after."
Red Bull and Sebastian Vettel have won the last three championships and have won two of the five races this season. Vettel is four points ahead of Lotus's Kimi Raikkonen with Alonso third.
