Fernando Alonso has shared his thoughts about Alpine’s progress ahead of the 2021 Formula 1 season.

The upcoming season will be important for Alpine as they have the opportunity to improve their position on the grid after the introduction of the new technical regulations.

Alonso believes that Alpine are in a better position compared to the start of the 2021 season.

“We are still not on top of all the problems, but everyone will have a different opinion,” he said.

“Obviously with experience working for different teams, I could see some things that we were weak, other areas we were very strong. You try always to make the team stronger and stronger and more prepared into 2022.

“I think we are in better shape now than what we were in March, in Bahrain, but still a few things I’m sure that we’ll have to fix.

“I think we need for sure to close the gap on the engine, that’s why there is this new project, and also we need to close the gap on the aero performance,” the Spaniard added.

“It’s difficult to know what is the gap, so at the moment there are only hopes but I understand that these hopes are for everybody. It’s not only to us, and it’s a completely unknown territory what we will find [this] year.”
