Asturian complains that his car always breaks down in races. Five dropouts have been added this season.
some erudite proverbs, but fully defines what you currently feel Fernando Alonso. “I go in for what I have left at the convent” must have thought Asturian after seeing how his Alpine race left him for the fifth time this season.
“It is impressive that only one or two cars are retired in each race and it is always Car 14. He broke five engines this year, problem in qualifying in Australia, In Austria we couldn’t even start the race because there was a blackout. I have quietly lost 66 points this season,” said Asturian in Mexico, utterly disappointed.
Fernando Alonso had everything under control until his car fell like a house of cards. He was seventh with 20 seconds ahead of his teammate Esteban Ocon—the way he’s left only twice this season—and McLaren. Guess which car’s cylinder broke and then burst into flames? famous 14.
The current numbers show us Fernando Alonso in the ninth position in the World Cup with 71 points. If Asturian’s calculations are correct, he should go over Lando Norris Which now normally carries 40 marks. “I give up and the rest applaud because they take points that don’t suit them,” he adds.
Suspicions of the Spanish boycott by Alpine became more apparent later this week when Alonso supervised repairs to his engineers in the car with a magnifying glass, Fernando knows that the French must sell the story that Esteban Ocon is better than him and that they are fighting him outright.
It’s impossible to fight against Okon
The team’s strategy is to have a driver running in the French team in 2023 to beat Alonso in the general classification. Right now he gets 11 points from a Fernando who will need a miracle To overtake his teammate in the two remaining races in Brazil and Abu Dhabi.
It’s unsurprising that in a year that Alonso is driving at best, these unusual problems are popping up. Driver Put together an impressive mid-season run scoring points for 10 consecutive races And getting on the nerves of alpine owners.
With Fernando Alonso managing Alpine begins to see ghosts and there is no shortage of reasons. “I already got it when I got here,” were the words of the team’s sheriff, Otmar Szafner, Which gives us a prelude to waiting for Asturian at the next race. We’ll see if they give him a new engine to save fourth place at the Constructors’ World Championship.
