The Spanish press quoted both the 25-year-old racer and engine boss Denis Chevrier as confirming that much attention this week will be put into ensuring that Alonso wins the title by not retiring at the 2006 championship finale. Chevrier admitted: “It is obvious that our technical approach will not be the same as usual. We are not going to be looking for that final tenth.”

And Chevrier insisted: “Fernando is not going to give up a chance to win if he sees that it is possible. Nevertheless, his objectives in Brazil will be different.” The ‘AS’ newspaper joked that the French squad should consider installing a ‘diesel’ power plant in Alonso’s car.

Or they can take the engine from the ever reliable “Maruti Suzuki 800” from India, it goes on and on and on and on …….

    I was listening to the REnault F1 podcast and the host was interviewing Pat Symonds after the race and asked what engine changes they were planning for Brazil. Without a change in tone he replied “We are making one out of Cast Iron”… Needless to say I was rolling all over the floor laughing.
