Fernando Alonso recalled scary conditions during the Belgian Grand Prix qualifying as the weather worsened the session and made Lando Norris have a big crash during Q3.
The Alpine driver qualified 14th for tomorrow’s Grand Prix and said they perform better in the dry, and admitted it will be hard if tomorrow the wet conditions repeat.
“I think we’re better in the dry, so we’ll see tomorrow if we have a chance. It has been the first weekend of the year that it rains and, if tomorrow it rains again, it’ll be hard. If it’s dry, then we have a chance. We’re going to try and make it to the points, it’s only 4 positions to make it, so let’s see if we can achieve it,” Alonso stated in Spanish to Dazn F1.
The Spaniard recalled having scares during qualifying as conditions changed drastically in the session.
“The biggest difficulty has been the change of conditions on track lap after lap, weather didn’t stop changing for a minute. The conditions were different each lap, sometimes you had more grip, sometimes you had less. It was scary, but it’s part of the game.
“I’ve been 14th in both sessions, I haven’t been competitive in qualifying,” he concluded.
