(ANSA) - Monza, September 6 - Spaniard Fernando Alonso said
Thursday he has put the horror crash that took place at the
start of last week's Belgium Grand Prix behind him and is fit
and focused on Ferrari's home Grand Prix at Monza this weekend.
Romain Grosjean's Lotus flew over Alonso's F2012 just
centimetres from his head after the Frenchman sparked a huge
crash by moving across on McLaren's Lewis Hamilton on the run to
the first corner.
Alonso remains top of the driver's championship despite not
scoring in Belgium, but Red Bull reigning world champ Sebastian
Vettel moved up to second place and cut the Ferrari driver's
lead to 24 points by coming second last weekend.
"I saw the images on TV. It was certainly an unfortunate
situation, above all for Grosjean," said Alonso, who won the
2005 and 2006 world titles with Renault.
"There were so many factors - the smoke from (Sauber's
Kamui) Kobayashi's car, (Williams driver Pastor) Maldonado's
false start and then the crash.
"It's something that went badly for lots of drivers but
then it was over.
"Everything is fine. The distance between the Lotus in
flight and my head was 20, 30 centimetres. But things turned out
OK".
Alonso added that he was confident Ferrari will be
competitive at the Italian Grand Prix, but said he sees the
McLarens in best shape given recent results.
McLaren's Jenson Button won in Belgium and Hamilton won the
previous race in Hungary.
"McLaren are going fast and they are favourites, but you'll
see that here at Monza, we'll pull out something good in
qualifying and in the race".
