Fernando Alonso is happy after qualifying in second place for the Canadian Grand Prix, a surprise for the Spaniard after rollercoaster results through the first half of the season.

The Alpine driver had shown a great performance through free practice 3 and managed to translate it into a good qualifying result.

“It feels great. It’s been an unbelievable weekend for us so far. We have been competitive in the free practice sessions, although we usually are on Fridays, we then lose some speed on Saturdays,” he said.

“Thanks to the wet conditions today. The car was mega, I was so comfortable in it and I think the fans also pushed me extra.”
