STICKING TO THE RULES: Fernando Alonso accumulated no penalties throughout the 2012 F1 season.

 

If Pastor Maldonado was the penalty king, then Fernando Alonso was the master of fair play in 2012.

That's the finding of Brazil's Globo Esporte, having compiled a list of the official FIA penalties attracted by F1's 24 drivers in 2012.

ZERO PENALTIES

Williams' Maldonado tops the list with 15 penalties, almost double the tally of penalty runner-up Sergio Perez, whose eight penalties was matched by World champion Sebastian Vettel's official infractions.

At the other extreme is Ferrari's Alonso, whose tally - zero - was matched only by German back-marker Timo Glock.

Alonso tweeted after the conclusion of the 2012 season: "I have no miracles, I make my miracles the correct rules.”
