Another impressive effort from Fernando Alonso, dragging his car through Q3. The Spaniard gives one of his renowned bits of glowing self assessment -- "I don't think I could have done any better than that" -- as he returns to the pit lane. Alonso fans can be optimistic, at least, that next year making Q3 should be a formality for the Spaniard as McLaren makes the switch to Renault power.
