Fernando Alonso says his glass is half full

ABU DHABI - Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso emphasized the positives on Sunday after Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel dashed the Spaniard’s hopes of seizing back the lead in the Formula One championship at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Vettel had started from the pit lane and in last place but by the end of a chaotic and crash-strewn evening, the double world champion stood on the podium in third place while title rival Fernando Alonso was second for Ferrari behind race winner Kimi Raikkonen.

Alonso is now 10 points adrift of the German with two races remaining in Texas and Brazil.

“Tonight I will go to sleep thinking the glass is half full rather than half empty,” said Alonso after finishing runner-up to 2007 world champion Kimi Raikkonen’s Lotus at the Yas Marina Circuit.
