No official penalties for Alonso in 2012

By on Friday, December 28, 2012

If Pastor Maldonado was the penalty king, then Fernando Alonso is the master of fair play in 2012.

That is the finding of Brazil's Globo Esporte, having compiled a list of the official FIA penalties attracted by F1's 24 drivers this year.

Williams' Maldonado tops the list with 15 penalties; almost double the tally of the penalty runner-up Sergio Perez, whose 8 penalties was also matched by world champion Sebastian Vettel's official infractions.

At the other extreme is Ferrari's Alonso, whose tally of zero penalties is matched only by German backmarker Timo Glock.

"I have no miracles, I make my miracles the correct rules," the Spaniard tweeted shortly after the conclusion of this year's 20-race calendar.
