Home pole would be unlikely ‘miracle’ – Alonso

Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso has likened the prospect of being on pole position in Barcelona to a “miracle”.

The Red Bulls appear clearly the fastest in Spain so far, but Sebastian Vettel has denied claims the RB6s will dominate the entire weekend.

But although the Ferrari is sporting technical updates this weekend, Spaniard Alonso does not think they are enough to track down Red Bull’s superior one-lap pace.

“You don’t have miracles from one race to the next,” he is quoted by Spanish reports.

“Whoever thought we were going to just close the gap and beat Red Bull were wrong,” added Alonso.
