In the two weeks before the next grand prix in China, Renault should consider whether the KERS route was the right decision for the opening two rounds of 2009.

That is what Fernando Alonso told the Spanish newspaper El Mundo after Sunday's Malaysian grand prix.

The 27-year-old was disappointed with the performance of his KERS system in Australia, but admitted that the energy re-use technology was better suited to Sepang last weekend

Indeed, as one of only seven cars fitted with KERS, Alonso sprang from ninth on the grid at the start to be third by the first corner.

But he said: "Right now we are not where we want to be overall and we have to change this. Soon it is necessary to analyse KERS or not (using) KERS.

"Here (in Malaysia) it was worth the trouble, whereas in Australia I do not know whether it was or not. We will go to China knowing more about it," added Alonso.
