Alonso going for podium finish on Sunday
22 September 2012 – Fernando Alonso will start the Singapore Grand Prix from fifth position, ahead of Mark Webber and Kimi Räikkönen but behind Lewis Hamilton and Sebastian Vettel. On what is a weekend of damage limitation for Ferrari, the Spaniard targets a podium finish.
“We will start fifth and on the inside line, so from there we should be in a good position to fight for the podium – and that is probably the maximum for us this weekend.”
Team-mate Felipe Massa is not likely to be in a position to aid Alonso, as the Brazilian was knocked out of Q2 and will line up only 13th at the start.
