Formula 1 – Lost In Translation ?

Few days ago I published a post “Interesting Quote From Fernando Alonso On His Future“. One reader, unfortunately Anonymous, left not too happy comment on the accuracy of the article. I have no intentions to make up stories or distort the facts, so I am very happy that this reader engaged in the constructive discussion with me and he gave me the link to the original Spanish article.

This is the Anonymous reader of this blog had to comment:

Here you have the link, if you keep the first sentence it is close to what English speaking media says “No sé donde voy a correr el año que viene. Es imposible saberlo. Lo único que sé es que tengo contrato con McLaren y que aquí sí que puedo correr”

But close to the end you have this “Tengo contrato con McLaren y aquí voy a correr, si no pasa nada raro. Es lo mismo que la guerra entre nosotros dos. Está bien escribir todo acerca de a ver adonde puedo ir, hacer encuestas y todo esto. Pero a día de hoy tengo contrato aquí y voy a correr aquí. Y no hay mucha especulación en eso”

Now you can decide …

I am not going to attempt to translate. Those who speak Spanish can do it themselves :-), for the rest ask friends or Babel fish :-)

I want to thank the Anonymous reader of the original article for his input!
