Alonso hopes to end title drought in Spain

Alonso hopes to end title drought in SpainLondon, Jun 23 : Formula One ace Fernando Alonso hopes to end his title drought in Spain by winning Sunday's European Grand Prix.

The race through Valencia's streets has been unkind to the local hero in the past, especially last year when the safety car controversially held up his Ferrari, dropping him to eighth place.

Alonso has also suffered bad luck in last two Grand Prix of this season.

Another safety car intervened as he was set to challenge Sebastian Vettel for the win in Monaco, The Sun reports.

And in Canada he was running strongly when his Ferrari got beached on a kerb after a collision with eventual winner Jenson Button.

Alonso said: "I know our fans are eagerly awaiting our first win of the season and I can assure you the same goes for us. At the last two races, we showed we were clearly capable of winning.

"In Monaco we came pretty close, although I believe that even in Canada I could have fought for it all the way to the end, given what we had seen in qualifying."

"Now we go to a track at Valencia with reasonably similar characteristics to Montreal, so there is no obvious reason why we should not be competitive here too. To tell the truth, I've never been that lucky in this race," he added. (ANI)
