ALONSO HAS A FEELING

OUT OF seven instalments, he won the inaugural night race in 2008 and again in 2010. He was also twice on the podium—third in 2009 and second in 2011— and never finished lower than fifth. Something about the Marina Bay Street Circuit brings out the best in two-time world champion Fernando Alonso, and the Spaniard is hoping to put in another performance here to lift the sagging spirits of McLaren.
