Fernando Alonso on Thursday denied his frustration with Ferrari’s poor 2014 hit a sarcastic low recently in Bahrain.
Hot on the heels of Stefano Domenicali’s departure, it now emerges that Alonso punched the air in an apparently sarcastic victory gesture, after the crossing the line just ninth in Bahrain two weeks ago.
It is known that Domenicali’s successor Marco Mattiacci will meet the F1 press for the first time on Friday, and team president Luca di Montezemolo has also confirmed Mattiacci’s presence in Shanghai.
But Alonso on Thursday told reporters he is not sure if he will meet Mattiacci ahead of the Chinese Grand Prix.
It has been rumoured Alonso, reportedly increasingly frustrated with the situation in his fifth season in red, could be Maranello’s next high-profile departure.
