Fernando Alonso and his withdrawal from the 2023 Mexican GP: “It affects our aerodynamics.”
After the race, Fernando Alonso used the microphone to explain what happened and share their feelings about the moment.
“I think we took some parts of Checo’s car, maybe, or someone on the first corner. It affects our aerodynamics”, he said after Miguel Portillo’s question.
“We’ve been on the straights this week, and we’ve only hit a piece of a car, and we’re still slow, so it’s a tough race,”Alonso explained from the Autódromo Hermanos Rodríguez.
