For Alonso, Alpine is on a good run


Alpine is in great shape. The French team has had good results. With 11 races, the team managed by Otmar Szafnauer is always in the points and in these last 11 meetings, the two drivers have tied the points eight times.

However, Alpine has suffered from reliability issues, particularly in Australia, England and Austria, which cost the Blues a lot of points.

The podium is still a bit away

“I think we are on a good path now. We have found consistency even if these last 10 races have not completely got us out of trouble. In Barcelona, ​​​​​​​​we changed the engine, we started last. In Austria the car has not started the sprint race and we started last Sunday so we still have to improve some things to have a clean weekend and if we do that we will probably get into the points in the next race »said Fernando Alonso in a press conference this Thursday in Monza.

When asked about his chances of a podium, the two-time world champion thinks he can only appear in race events or if many drivers are penalized.

“I think we’re in the same place we’ve been all year. I think we’re just behind the top three teams, so our natural position is, say, seventh and eighth, so we need help from the cars in front of us all the time. Sometimes there are penalties like in Spa and we start third on the grid. There are other penalties to come with Carlos and Lewis, I heard, so that we have a good starting position, but soon in the race we finally found ourselves in nature (position). »
