Alonso continues to trust Alpine

Formula 1 lands in interlagos where a sprint weekend will be relived, with more points at stake that can be used to alleviate recent losses. An opportunity, for example, to Fernando Alonso, who complained after the Hermanos Rodríguez race about the number of points left behind due to the reliability of the Alpine. “Looking back at the weekend, it was a pretty quiet Saturday for us in qualifying and another Q3. In the race we feel comfortable and managing the car and the tires. We were more than 10 seconds ahead of the rear before we suffered the engine problem. We tried to keep going and the team tried to solve the problem, but it was not possible and that’s why we lost so much time and performance before finally stopping. Before the problem, I would say that it was one of my best races of the season where I felt very competitive. It is another set of points we’ve lost this season in the standings, but we’ll pick ourselves up and keep pushing until the end”, Says the Spaniard about the Mexican appointment and before setting his sights on Brazil.

In Brazil it will be the nineteenth appearance of Fernando Alonso in Interlagos; this means that he will equal Rubens Barrichello as the driver with the most starts on the Brazilian circuit. Fernando’s two world championships, in 2005 and 2006, were crowned both years at the Brazilian Grand Prix, with two races remaining in the season in 2005 and 2006.

There the objective for the two-time champion is clear: pick up some good swag and keep McLaren at bay, 7 points behind. In addition to beating last season’s record, as Alpine is two points away from equaling its points total in 2021: “Thanks to the sprint format we have two attempts in which to score points and extend our lead over McLaren heading into Abu Dhabi . That has been the goal every weekend and it is no different there in Brazil. We thought that the fight for fourth position in the constructors would go all the way in Abu Dhabi and it looks like it will. We know that when we have a clean weekend with no problems, we have a fast car that is more than capable of scoring points.”.
