Alonso: I need to find more pace and confidence

Fernando Alonso believes he still has a lot of pace and confidence to find, despite a strong comeback race in Bahrain.

Fernando Alonso has admitted to not feeling quite on top of things just yet, despite his strong showing over the Bahrain Grand Prix weekend.

The Spaniard, returning to Formula 1 after two seasons on the sidelines, qualified in the top ten on Saturday and looked a possible contender for a low points position until a brake issue forced him into retirement.

Despite how well he did, Alonso believes he has much more pace and confidence to find.

"I was not at my 100 percent, I'm sure of that," Alonso admitted to media, including RacingNews365.com afterwards.

Alonso had a particularly entertaining scrap with Ferrari's Carlos Sainz and Aston Martin's Sebastian Vettel early in the race, ultimately losing out to the Ferrari.

"It was nice, we had a couple of good battles. Some of them, they were happy endings and in some of them they were not because we've been overtaken!

"But I need to find more pace from myself. I need to find more confidence. I need to extract more from the car, from the brakes. Execute the start better."

Identifying some specific areas in where he feels he can sharpen up some more, Alonso said: "It was not too bad, but I think there are a lot of room to improve from from my side.

"Even the pit stops, I think the guys did an amazing job, but my position for assembling the second pit stop was was not right.

"So there are small things and small mistakes that I keep doing from testing and this first race and hopefully by race two or three, I can perform better personally."
