Ferrari's Fernando Alonso buoyed by Abu Dhabi GP display
Fernando Alonso is pleased with his second-place finish at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix , saying his Ferrari car did "better than expected".
The Spaniard, who started fifth on the grid, overtook Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel, Mark Webber and Jenson Button of McLaren to sit just behind leader Lewis Hamilton for the rest of the race.
However, Alonso insists his start was not "special" and McLaren simply had "more pace" than his Ferrari team at Yas Marina.
