How sick is Fernando Alonso’s radio with only six laps left in the US GP? What a pain, knowing the journey that the Asturian had to make to fight to be eighth, which became sixth after the disqualification of Lewis Hamilton and Charles Leclerc. What a pain to see him take the road to Pit Road in the big fight he had in Austin.
With great speed, confirmed by him and his boss at the Silverstone brand, which he showed on the Texas track Which was shown by the worst weekend of Aston Martin, and then, who would have thought, they got more than positive conclusions for the future.
Looking at Mexico, that doesn’t exist. Looking ahead to the remaining tests in 2023 and also for a key 2024 in the future of Fernando and the British team In tests where, usually, the problem that caused Alonso to be knocked out in the United States will not be repeated,
“Guys, I have a problem…”
“Guys, I have a problem with the rear suspension,” Alonso said on the radio to his Aston Martin mechanic. They didn’t see anything until they did, and they sent the Asturian to the garage.
Afterwards, his boss confirmed to ‘DAZN’ the real reason for the two-time champion’s farewell, also giving details of how AMR23 was destroyed.
“Lost a Little Land”
“No, it’s not the suspension. It’s the ground, on the right side,” said Mike Krack.
And they saw it right away: “A small part of the right side of the floor is missing.”
“Maybe because he got on the piano a little bit, or because he touched himself… I don’t know,” Krack said.
Nothing too important
So, there is nothing serious about what, in the 2023 race, is the first retirement of Fernando Alonso. Yes, the starting Alpine routine here takes 18 races to happen.
After Hamilton’s disqualification, Alonso still has third place in the World Cup to reach. Are Aston Martin’s improvements enough? How far has Mercedes progressed? Four races remain until the end of 2023, with a Las Vegas GP that no one knows about.
