Alonso regains his smile

To announce the summer break in the Formula One World Championship, the organization displayed this Sunday at the Hungaroring circuit a large mural with the well-known image of the Spanish Fernando Alonso sunbathing on an armchair after his retirement from the Brazilian Grand Prix 2015.

The image surprised the fans and the pilot himself, who this time posed with a smile after signing his best performance of the season. The Asturian was sixth in Hungary and signed, against the forecast, the fastest lap of the race.

“We were looking for seventh or eighth place,” he acknowledged in statements provided by his team, “but the withdrawal of Daniel Ricciardo made possible the climb to sixth position.”

“We worked all weekend for this, without mistakes, with three good practice sessions and a great qualifying. In the race we did it perfect ”, he celebrated.

Fernando Alonso, however, was cautious.

“There are three or four weekends in which we can be competitive and that is where we must get our potential,” he said after adding 8 of the 10 points accumulated this year.

His prognosis is different for the next two tests, in Spa (Belgium) and Monza (Italy).

“It is going to be two difficult Grand Prix for us, so we must enjoy this result. It was a good race and we go on vacation with a smile on our faces, “he remarked. EFE
