Fernando Alonso is not concerned about his FP1 incident during the Monaco Grand Prix on Thursday.
The two-time world champion Alonso had a moment in the opening session of the Monaco GP. The Alpine driver had a contact with the wall and damaged the front wing. The Spaniard spoke about the incident.
“I touched in 2010 – that was much more painful because I missed qualifying after that – so today was just a little kiss. We did manage to complete a lot of laps, I think it was 37 in the morning and 27 in the afternoon: sixty-something laps today, which helps to keep the rhythm into the weekend,” he said.
Alonso also spoke about his day in general: “It was intense, intense and I’m still not finished yet, you know? Because there is some work to do. Not only with the engineers but here in Monaco it’s quite special, not only because the track activity but because of the off-track [activity].”
“There are some studies to do with all the data we collected today but it’s going to be a good qualifying to watch, maybe inside the car will be more stressful, but I think for you guys it’s going to be quite spectacular.”
Fernando Alonso was 13th and 12th respectively in the opening free practices in Monte Carlo.
