A race with the step of the shrimp, for Fernando Alonso. Starting in fifth place after yesterday’s excellent qualifying, the Spaniard struggled in terms of pace, even ending up excluded from the points in the first Sprint of the season. The ninth place on Saturday in Imola cannot satisfy the Alpine driver, overtaken by Daniel Ricciardo and Sergio Perez at the start and then by Carlos Sainz and Valtteri Bottas thanks to the DRS. But the two-time world champion remains confident for tomorrow.
“We are a little disappointed, having started fifth and finished ninth. Today we were a little behind, we didn’t have the rhythm and the tires wore out quickly, it happened several times. We lost two or three points, but the real race is Sunday, so head to tomorrow“, The Spaniard explained to his compatriots from DAZN. “For tomorrow, there are predictions of rain and we must see if we can take advantage of it. We have had changing conditions all weekend, it is going to rain again“.
