In an interview with Britain's Independent, the Renault driver was asked about two changes that were designed to spice up the show: 'boost button' KERS systems, and the driver-adjustable flaps.
Alonso and his team's negative attitude about KERS is well known, but when asked about the cockpit-mounted button that can adjust the angle of a front wing element twice per lap, the Spaniard answered: "I never touch it!
"So far, nine races, I never use it. It's not useful at all. KERS, the aerodynamics, they are two new regulations that didn't work this year," Alonso added.
