Alonso for second place in his favorite circuit

Fernando Alonso arrives at the Brazilian Grand Prix, last round of the World, in the third place overall 10 points behind Jenson Button. Although the Spaniard has shown in recent races that prefers to climb to the top of the drawer to be runner-up, both he and Ferrari will look forward in that second place finish after a difficult year. It will not be easy to cut as many points to a Button is doing a spectacular year, but Alonso holds on to a circuit that presents a few figures, and some joy-capitalized.

The Spaniard, who has nine starts at the Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace, has been on the podium at this circuit a total of six times. There is another where the drawer has visited. Two second places (2006 and 2008, both with Renault) and four others (2003, 2005 with Renault, 2007 with McLaren and Ferrari 2010) will attest.

Its reliability in Interlagos reaches the point that his worst result, finishing the race, is the fourth since 2004. And is that Alonso has left only twice in Brazil, one in 2001 with Minardi, and another in 2009, his senior year at Renault.

Even their progress in each race, ie the post that appeared on grill finally finished, it was almost always up. Of the seven races he finished, only one, in 2005, finished worse than in qualifying. Interestingly, it was the year in which he achieved his only pole there and a third place finish in the race he secured his first world title revalidaría prize a year later, precisely in the same circuit.
