Apr.6 (GMM) Robert Kubica celebrated his first pole position on Saturday night with a quiet game of cards with his closest F1 friend -- double world champion Fernando Alonso.
But while Alonso, the Spaniard who had qualified tenth in Bahrain, was delighted for his Polish friend, he insists that the rise of BMW Sauber does not bode well for the recovery of his Renault team in 2008."Instead of two teams in a different world to us, now there are three," the 26-year-old told the Spanish newspaper El Pais at Sakhir."For me this is not a good development, because now I am aspiring only to seventh position in races at the most."Alonso said he also played cards with Kubica after qualifying in Australia, where a driving error cost the 22-year-old pole position."Tonight I think he will not be as bad tempered as he was then," Alonso laughed.
