Not using exzact words, but Alain Prost almost confirming that Alonso will get new steering in France by saying "he knows we expect him to performe better in France"
https://www.formula1.com/en/latest/arti ... w-4_fI7TSg

No he didn't. Not directly and also not between the lines.
“He’s getting better and better,” added Prost. “But still not completely at the top in my opinion. He knows that and we expect that [he’ll perform better at] the French Grand Prix, where it’s a different track, a wider circuit he knows well. So we’ll see, but I’m not surprised that it takes a little bit of time.”
Wouldn't wonder me if we don't hear anything of this power steering change ever again.

I 100% see this a confirmation between the lines.

You WANT to see this as a confirmation, in reality that was just a standard phrase from Prost.

And oh wonder: no single word about it at the media day.

I hope for him he has or gets this new power steering, I don't believe however that this will magically change his driving (like many dream about).

I think after he gets new PS he will be faster than Ocon.
Of course there will be no official anauncment about that upgrade, why would there be.

It doesn't count till it counts. Could just be a glorie run for the French fans.


In 2019 almost everyone was in the 1:31s-1:32 in FP2. This year The top 14 are mainly 1:33 with acouple of 1:32.8s.
Merc pushed low 1:28s in Quali in 2019. Could we be that far of the 2019 pace ?

Possibly.. I’ve seen on AMUS Alpine think we are not as fast as Ferrari and because we installed our new engine and some other teams were still using old engines from Baku that will bring them 1.5 tenths closer today which would mean maybe one of our cars might make it into Q3. But yes let’s see today Friday was good but they need to take another step to stay where they were. Fingers crossed and all! :)
