Alonso: "I won't be having nightmares about Petrov"

First Abu Dhabi, now Australia. In the grand finale to last year's campaign, Fernando Alonso got stuck behind Vitaly Petrov and lost valuable time.

In this year's curtain-raiser in Melbourne, Alonso now finds himself deprived of a podium spot by the Russian. The Spaniard was breathing down Petrov's neck in the run-up to the finish, but the Renault man had the fresher tyres and Alonso had to settle for fourth.
