Re: Drivers' Worst Circuits?

In terms of results, USA's Indy street circuit is Alonso's worst track, worse than Canada. In Canada he won in 2006 and should have won in 2005 too but he made a tiny mistake (kissed a wall) and that made him retire, plus the magnificent performance in 2003 with an inferior car, 4seconds off the rac...

So the difference between him and his team mate (no m...
