SHANGHAI – Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso responded sarcastically to the qualifying edge currently enjoyed by teammate Felipe Massa, saying he can't sleep and is losing his hair.
Massa has qualified ahead of Alonso in the past four races — the first two this season and the last two last year — and if he does it again this weekend in the Chinese Grand Prix it will be the first time in Alonso's career that he has been outqualified by a teammate five straight times.
Asked about the statistic, Alonso quipped: "I haven't slept since Australia. I'm only eating white rice. I'm losing my hair. A huge drama."
