Fernando Alonso has gently criticised teammate Giancarlo Fisichella for playing a quiet role in the battle for the 2006 world championship.

The Spaniard was confined to third place at the start of Magny Cours’ F1 race last Sunday when title rival Michael Schumacher’s teammate, Felipe Massa, assertively closed down a passing move.

”Schumacher was able to take advantage of Massa’s work,” Renault driver Alonso was quoted as saying by Spanish newspaper ‘Diario de Noticias’.

Surely referring to Fisichella, who meandered around in sixth or seventh place throughout the French grand prix event, he added: ”Unfortunately, not everyone can benefit from the same things.

”I always race alone without any help.”
