Alonso frustrated with amount of lost points

Fernando Alonso claims that he lost 60 points in the 2022 Formula 1 season.

Alonso was running in 6th place in Singapore on Sunday before encountering engine failure that forced him to retire. It was the Spaniard’s 4th retirement in 2022.

His teammate Esteban Ocon also did not manage to finish the race because of engine issues. McLaren capitalized on Alpine’s struggles and took over 4th place in the Constructors’ Championship.

Alonso admitted that he was not happy with how many points he lost this season.

“I think it was around minus 50 [points], so now we have another eight. So it’s minus 58 points or minus 60 in a year which is really unacceptable on my car,” he said.

“If you put me 60 points more in the standings and you reduce 10 or something to the others because you would take points from those as well, my championship will look much better and close even to¬†Mercedes.

“So that is probably more accurate of the performance that we are putting this year which I’m very proud of. Even today [on Sunday], the top five or top six we were fighting for. But the standings doesn’t translate to performance.”
