The Alpine driver Fernando Alonso is delighted with his performance at the Mexico City Grand Prix.
- Alonso admits that he is glad with his recovery after a difficult qualifying, where he was eliminated in Q1.
- The Spaniard admits that the start of the race was quite chaotic.
What he had to say:
- “I’m happy. A well-executed race again for us. P9, a couple of points for the team after a difficult weekend; I think yesterday, we didn’t manage to put a lap together. I was not proud of my job yesterday, but I’m a little bit proud today of my driving and hopefully those points will help the team at the end of the year.”
- “It was messy, because it’s not only one car facing towards you, it’s also the smoke and the poor visibility. We were a little bit close on the right side, but it was worse for [Daniel] Ricciardo [and] Bottas so we gained a couple of positions for free, so that was good.”
