F ernando Alonso is a man of clear words. Before the season, no one at Ferrari would have dared use the word 'World Championship'. Not after the problems with the new car during the winter test drives. Five races later, the 30-year-old Spaniard is at the top of the drivers' championship together with Sebastian Vettel. That came as a surprise to Alonso too. 'We never thought that we would lead the World Championship after five races this season.'

Alonso demands a faster car

This automatically raises the question of the World Championship chances. Alonso doesn't avoid the question: 'Yes, we have a chance for the title. It's up to us to take advantage of it. To do this, we have to make our car faster.'

It is a season that is tailor-made for Alonso . Nobody uses their chances better than him. In 2005 and 2006 he won his world title against drivers in better cars. Because he made fewer mistakes than his opponents and because he has a good nose for what is possible and what is not.

Alonso wants to make history in Monaco

This year is exactly this situation occurred. The driver who scores consistently and wins every now and then will have the edge in the end. 'This year is strange,' said the Ferrari driver with a smile. 'Nobody is significantly stronger than us, nobody is significantly worse. Somehow everyone is good and has a chance. It is important to always do the best job.'

Monte Carlo is a race that you can do too wins in the head. And in which the driver can throw everything away with one mistake. Alonso wants to be the first to win this race three times in three different cars. In 2006 he triumphed in a Renault in the Principality, in 2007 in a McLaren-Mercedes.

'A Monaco victory makes you immortal. People remember it. Not because it is the most difficult or the most beautiful race on the calendar is the most important thing. The Grand Prix is ​​secondary here. The hype around it makes it something special. '
