Alonso feels new F1 rules will lead to better races
"Obviously every year normally Formula 1 changes rules to make it more spectacular, to have more overtaking maneuvers and to have a better show," said Alonso in an interview provided by the Ferrari press office (see below).
"It's true that in 2011 there are two big changes to the regulations, which is the KERS and the rear wing that we can move when we have an overtaking possibility. I think these two combined give us a speed advantage that is quite big compared to the car in front.
"So I'm confident that next year, finally, the rules will help overtaking and we will have a better show for everybody."
"One of the most important is the tires, which normally change the behavior of the car, so we have to make sure that Pirelli is well coordinated with our car," said Alonso.
"Then we have the KERS, which comes back from 2009, and in 2011 will be a very important tool for overtaking and also for performance. We need to find a way of preparing the car to use the KERS in the best way possible.
"Then there is the moveable rear wing, that will try to make a better show, but also is a new area to experiment and exploit for performance."
