Alonso offers F1 warning
Fernando Alonso is the latest driver to come out and suggest that this year's unpredictability is damaging Formula One's credibility.
Following on from last year's procession from Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel, the current campaign could not be in starker contrast as six different winners have won the first six races for the first time in the sport's history. Mark Webber was the latest to take the chequered flag this term, following on from the likes of Nico Rosberg and Pastor Maldonado who have also recorded maximum points, with Alonso himself victorious in the Malaysian Grand Prix in spite of a disastrous pre-season. It leaves the standings very wide open at this stage but Alonso, who currently tops the pile, feels that a 'lottery' is not good for the sport's image. "It's a fantastic season, it's so unpredictable. I think people stand in front of the TV with some surprises every race. It's good for the audience, it's good for the sport to bring attention to the races," double world champion told CNN. "On the other hand we can lose credibility. We cannot lose that the best teams, the best drivers, the best strategies win the races, because at the moment from the outside it seems that in every race anyone can win. "It doesn't matter the talent, it doesn't matter the team, the performance - it's like a lottery. What you achieve in Formula One is not by chance. We need to make clear that if you win a race, it's because you did something better. And I don't think at the moment that this is clear for everybody."
