Fernando Alonso names best seasons

Fernando Alonso has revealed what he feels are his best years in Formula One.

Surprisingly, the two-time champion hasn't named either of his triumphant years in his top three, instead opting for years where he was less successful.

"2012 is probably my best season in Formula One," Alonso said, referring to the year where he came close to winning the championship in a relatively uncompetitive Ferrari. "Then it could be 2014 my second best. Then probably this one will be on the final step of the podium so far.

"I felt very confident in the car in every condition [in 2016]. Even the last 10 laps in Brazil I felt really competitive with 40-lap old tyres, things like that. That confidence in the car gave me the opportunity to drive at the limit on many occasions. I consider this year on a very high standard from my driving part of view."
