- Alonso claimed third place in the race, his first podium in Formula 1 after 7 years.
- Brawn praised the Spaniard and his French team for their work, and wondered if the podium will entice Alonso to stay in the sport for longer.
What he said:
- “Fernando is my driver of the weekend. Like Lewis, he dialed into the track very quickly and got the car working well.”
- “That Alpine looked good all weekend. He’s just enjoying himself so much. He’s in his element.”
- “It’s brilliant to see him up there on the podium and brilliant to see Alpine doing so well here this weekend.”
- “Will it entice him to stay around for a while longer? Who knows? I think we all want Fernando around for a while. He’s driving very well. He deserves to be there, there’s no question about that. It’s great for the sport, great for the fans, great for everyone.”
