Fernando Alonso Undoubtedly the latter suffered a great disappointment”a bad weekend” In front of Spanish fans. If his worst result ever was a fourth in Baku, then finishing seventh at home and breaking a streak of podiums certainly isn’t ideal, but Heaven concedes that “we don’t have the rhythm for more”.
Overall, Alonso wants to turn the page as soon as possible and is already thinking about the developments he plans to incorporate within two weeks in Canada: “We didn’t have the rhythm like other Sundays. , neither with soft nor with hard rubber we had a tenth to keep up with Mercedes. We’re a little ahead of Alpine, Alpha Tauri. And probably on par with Ferrari,” he added.

,Lance Stroll maintains gap with Carlos Sainz from first ‘period’, So we lacked the same rhythm with Red Bull, who finished half a minute behind them, but Mercedes is the one who made the biggest change in rhythm”, Fernando analyzed at the foot of the track.
Regarding the step forward that Mercedes has taken with Hamilton and Sainz on the podium in Barcelona, Alonso warned that “they have added more than us and are ahead of us in the constructors’ championship, but we took the points from Ferrari, so I’ll step aside.” I’m happy. In Canada we’ll take more things and we’ll crush them”, he joked.
“I’m happy because qualifying was the sore point of the weekend. After starting so far I was able to come back, but up to a certain point. I feel With normal qualifying we would have had a better chance this Sunday, but Russell and Checo were both fast so there wasn’t much to do. We saved points and now we have to look ahead and keep working”, Alonso insisted.
“It hasn’t been an easy race”
In the end, he didn’t attack Stroll, sixth: “It was difficult, but we don’t care because they are the same number of points for the team. Lance drives a ‘top’ race and we’ve scored more points than Ferrari About his overtaking of Ocon: “Enough straight, nothing happened. we don’t touch this time (joked). all good, It hasn’t been an easy race, from the start and the fall we didn’t know if it was stage two or stage three. In the end we went two but it was lack of rhythm more than anything. This is normal”.

In any case, it looks like he’s one step away from five podiums in six races so far. It didn’t matter, Saturday (and the lack of development) was the reason, he explains: “With a normal classification we would have been on the front row, you go with the front end, you consume less tires and We do third or fourth. In Miami we weren’t ready for the podium, but we qualified on the front row and you ensure the podium, Even in Monaco. We have saved many podiums with very good Saturdays, we had a very bad Saturday here but I am happy and calm.
