The Spanish Fernando Alonso (Alpine), double Formula One world champion, declared, with a view to the Singapore Grand Prix, the seventeenth of the year, that his car "did not go so well in Monza (Italy)" and he hopes that in this next try “recover level”.
“Of the three consecutive races in Europe we came away with 18 points, which we added in Spa (Francorchamps, in Belgium) and in Zandvoort (Netherlands). We had two strong races there and the car was going very well. Unfortunately, we had to retire the car in Italy, where we hoped to complete our XNUMXth straight race in points”, he commented.
"The car was not noticeable in Monza as well as in the two previous races, so we took a look at the matter to try to understand what happened," said Alonso, who this Sunday will break the record for the most F1 races held, raising it to 350, after equaling the 349 of the Finn Kimi Raikkonen two Sundays ago in the Lombard temple of speed.
"We hope to recover our usual level of competitiveness here in Singapore", commented the brilliant Asturian driver, who achieved two of his 32 victories in the premier class in this Grand Prix (in 2008 and 2010), which will be held on the urban circuit of Marina Bay, 5.063 meters, which is scheduled to be completed on Sunday with 61 laps, to complete a 308,7-kilometre route.
“Everyone in the team has been working hard on improving the package for this race, so I'm looking forward to seeing what it produces,” Alonso said ahead of the Singapore Grand Prix.
