Alpine’s Fernando Alonso believes a podium is impossible unless a “chaotic race” like the one at Hungary earlier this year takes place.


  • The Spaniard talked about the French team’s performance, saying they need a “very chaotic race” which allows them to capitalize on mistakes from the top teams.

What he had to say:

  • “I think we are the fifth or sixth quickest team out there,” he said.
  • “So for us to get a podium, we really need a very chaotic race. Without that, I think by pure performance, I think top six, top seven is our maximum position.”
  • “We did achieve that in a few races this year, and I’m happy with the consistency. And you need to be super lucky to get one podium. I was not so far.”
  • “I think we need to work on realistic expectations.”
