As it started, it ended badly Canadian Grand Prix Formula 1 For Fernando Alonso. The Spaniard managed to start from second, but finished seventh after 70 laps behind teammate Esteban Ocon. The two-time world champion said after the economic downturn that there was a lack of resources behind his performance, and that his energy storage system was poor, so it wasn’t as fast as it could have been.
“I lost eight tenths of a second on each lap. I had to drive farther into the turns to stay on the DRS train because if I didn’t, I would have been vulnerable in the straight line.”
Alonso had more trouble in the final stages of the race, as after the safety car shook the field, he had to actively defend himself in seventh against Valtteri Bottas. The Spaniard was finally able to keep Alfa Romeo Finn behind, but only by changing direction a few times. However, he was punished for this: he added five seconds to the race time, falling two places to Bottas and Cho Kwan.
