Fernando Alonso Jerez Test 2008The two-time Formula One World Champion Fernando Alonso has suggested that the BMW Sauber F1 Team could be much more ahead in terms of performance than seen so far during the pre-season test sessions. The Spaniard, said to local newspaper Diario As: “Two or three weeks ago they were a little bit behind, quite close to us.

“But things can change so quickly, and now they are almost on a par with McLaren. Sometimes, you realize that their times were set early on in a batch of 25 or 30 laps, or with 60 or 70 kilos of fuel on board. BMW is the team that has surprised me the most in the past two or three tests”.

Alonso has spent also some words on Ferrari, acknowledging that the Maranello-based team could be the team to beat right from the beginning but he hasn’t agreed that they will dominate this season. “I heard that Trulli or Fisico said they (Ferrari) have already won the title, but I don’t believe in that.”
