Fernando Alonso admitted that he wants to take any possible opportunity at Sochi and hopes the team can perform well in Russia.

Why it matters: Alpine wants to perform better than in Monza, and even though it might not be the best car in the midfield, the French outfit usually does well on Sunday.

Details: 

  • Alonso admitted that he did not have his best races in Sochi in the past. However, he performed many overtakes in the race, so he is positive for this year’s Grand Prix.
  • The Spaniard also underlined that the relationship with the team is great, and that also helps everyone within Alpine. 
  • He finally added that the team is focused on the 2022 season, but they are also concentrated on finishing the current year on a high.

Let’s see if we can put it all together this year. We need to continue scoring points twice as we did in Italy and materialize any opportunities that arise.

What he had to say:

  • “It has already been a long season, but I am enjoying being back in the races. The cars are fantastic to drive, and the team atmosphere we are building is very positive.
  • “We are hopeful for next season, but we have to enjoy the rest of this year. I will keep pushing to get the best out of myself and also the car.”

I am an Italian guy. I love Motorsport because of the emotions that it gives me and I grew up watching races. That's what I love!
