Melbourne: Spanish Formula One driver Fernando Alonso of McLaren admitted that if Ferrari wins this year's World Championship, he will regret leaving the Italian team.
On Thursday at the Melbourne Grand Prix Circuit in Albert Park (Australia), where the championship is scheduled to start on Sunday, Alonso was asked if he would regret leaving Ferrari if they win the title this year, reports Efe.
"If they win the championship, probably yes. I had a contract last year and this year with them, so if they win the championship this year, I probably will feel that I could have had that opportunity as well," he responded.
"You know, I am aware of the difficulties that we had last year, and I am aware of the difficulties that we may face this year in terms of performance," Alonso said, but added that his team has learned its lessons and applied them this year.
"At least for last year, this year, I feel happy inside because I can see the commitment, and I see the project that one day we will win. We want to make that time as short as possible and it is what we are working for," Alonso acknowledged.
