FLAV, FERNANDO, TO 'TALK'

2005-05-18 10:32

Briatore, the team principal, well remembers that the unforgiving Principality was the scene of his Spanish driver's only real mistake in 2004.

Last year, in the tunnel, Alonso clashed with Williams' Ralf Schumacher.

'Flav' told Autosprint: "I'll talk to him, like I do before every grand prix.

"But I'm sure he'll be able to read the race well, with the maturity and the awareness displayed previously."

Indeed, 23-year-old Alonso - in the five races so far this year - has won three times and never failed to appear on the podium.

Crashes aside, though, Briatore is pretty confident he'll be taking a trophy or two home.

And, in reference to Sunday's black tie award ceremony, he smilingly revealed: "I'll put my tuxedo in my suitcase."
