Alonso takes blames for crash

2008-05-28 12:37

Fernando Alonso has accepted the blame for his crash with BMW-Sauber's Nick Heidfeld in the famous Loews hairpin during last Sunday's Monaco Grand Prix.

Heidfeld, whose car was damaged after the collision, turned into the Spaniard's Renault as Alonso, 26, tried to pass the German.

"I was trying really hard to recover my options to be on the podium," Alonso explained to the Spanish newspaper El Pais.

"He was losing a lot of time in the slow corners with the tyres he was using.

"I tried once and didn't make it, and then I saw a little opportunity in the next corner, where it is pretty impossible to pass.

"It was a chance in a million, and I didn't make it. It was my fault, my mistake by taking a risky chance.

"But for us it was not so important, unlike for Raikkonen, who is fighting for the title and scored no points," Alonso added.
