Alpine extends lead over McLaren

At Zandvoort, both Alpine drivers scored points, allowing the team to extend their lead over McLaren for fourth place in the Constructors’ Championship…

Fernando Alonso (6th): “Have a good flight. I finished sixth, earned a lot of points. I lost a few places at the beginning, but I was able to recover by switching to hard tires early. The car allowed me to drive at a high pace, I kept attacking.

The only time I felt I could relax a bit was after the switch to Soft, but the safety car pulled away and everything started over. I did my best to withstand the attacks of those in the back on fresher tires – the pace in the closing laps was the same as in qualifying.

Another good result, I have scored points for the tenth race in a row and I am ready to continue this series in Italy next week.”

Esteban Ocon (9th): “I’m happy to have earned points after coming back from a bad qualifying. We have increased the lead over McLaren again, which is important in the battle for position in the Constructors’ Championship. I had a great start and gained a few places in the first round which allowed me to earn points.

There is always something to add. We will think about how we can do better next time. Only a week left until the next race – I’m already looking forward to Monza. I like the Italian track, it suits our car and I hope for a good result.”
