Alonso thinks the tires make qualifying well less important.
Quote:
The Spanish driver also undermined the importance of qualifying, claiming that the unpredictable Pirelli tires made a good starting position less important.

“There were years when it was vital to start from the first row or from pole position, but since Pirelli arrived qualifying has become less and less important.

“In the first two races of the season Kimi [Raikkonen] won pretty easily in Australia starting from seventh and anyone could have won in Malaysia. But there is a tendency for qualifying to become less important.”
I don't agree. You have to get a nose in front of Red Bull. Do that, and they're neutered.
