Before being summoned Alonso and Vettel in Race Direction at the Red Bull Ring Fernando Alonso was very upset to the DAZN microphones with the incident that cost him a good position on the grid for a race with difficult overtaking.
“It does not matter a bit what happens with him (Vettel), they will only penalize him and that does not solve anything because for us it was to start 5th or 6th, our best classification of the year. We had been 3rd in Q1, we could have finished 4th in Q2, we would have aspired to be 5th or 6th in Q3 and from that to come out 14th, it is worth adding a lot to no point because that cannot be traced here. The weekend is over for us ”, he began to relate.
He insisted that “the sanction that may fall (to Vettel) does not change anything, even if the twentieth came out, because we went from being able to add ten or twelve points to add zero”
“It was a weekend that we got on so well, another I wouldn’t mind, but in this one we had the selection for the first time with two sets of new tires for Q3, the selection was very based on Saturday and less on Sunday so Sunday will be a race to forget because of a curve, it’s frustrating “
“Here everyone is in a tenth, very even and we have no speed on the straight, you start 14 and finish 12; when I think we could have finished fifth or sixth. I think we deserved it, because the car was going well ”.
