Alonso bites his tongue

Two weeks ago Alonso gave a key slipstream to Ocon in the Austin classification, when the Asturian changed his engine and did not aspire to a good position on the grid. In Mexico, the Frenchman replaced his power unit and… eliminated the Asturian in Q1. A questionable strategy, given the Alpine’s lack of competitiveness, which he left Fernando 16th in qualifying, although he will start 12th by overtaking the four drivers with pending sanctions.

The question, what happened? “…”. Alonso does not respond. It does not make blood before a relevant strategic error, because a car that will start from the bottom cannot leave out the other.

“It should have reached Q2, it would have had the slipstream. Well, no, because it would have thrown Esteban out of Q1. We chose to make only one attempt after the red flag and all teams made two. We were a bit too optimistic. If I got to put the lap well, I would have passed. “The two-time champion assumes that there was room for something better:” I think the lap could be much better, before the red flag (by accident of Stroll) the lap was 1: 17.8 which seemed enough to get through Q1, but it didn’t count. Then in the moment of truth I didn’t do a full lap and it’s a shame because there were more features in my pocket. “

“No” is a surprise, ditch in conversation with AS, the lack of competitiveness in Hermanos Rodríguez: “It was a surprise to be so competitive in Sochi and Turkey.” And now, what career is there? “It will be interesting, it is a very difficult circuit in terms of temperatures and brakes. We will see, I started last in Austin with a very uncompetitive weekend and still fought for 10th place. Tomorrow I start 12th, so points are very possible “
