Fernando Alonso is brimming with confidence
So far this season, none of the drivers in the Formula One world have seemed to be able to take the initiative and push ahead in the Formula One drivers' championship...
After a flawless performance at the Singapore GP this weekend, Fernando Alonso is starting to push his way through the pack...
The Spaniard emerged victorious in Singapore over the weekend, giving him a total of three victories out of the last five races.
He has now moved ahead of Lewis Hamilton, who looks to have thrown his title shot away after failing to finish over the weekend.
Alonso is only eleven points behind the current title leader Mark Webber of Red Bull, and he feels that he has managed to regain some of the best form of his career.
"Right now, at this point of the championship, I'm at a peak - 100% motivated, focused etc," said Alonso.
Alonso admitted that he has been worried about his form in the past, but conceded that his competes in a sport where ability is in a constant state of flux.
"We are in a sport where you cannot be completely fit, focused and motivated 100% at every race, every month. You are up and down.” added Alonso.
The Ferrari driver has been the most consistent of the title contenders in the last few races, managing to bag himself the most points of any of the top drivers.
Alonso is clearly brimming with confidence and has said that he believes that this is start of his era of dominance within the championship.
“It feels like the championship is starting now, so I feel very happy we will be going to Japan next race," said Alonso.
