No he was a front
Not that it mattered, he was on used tires.
Yes i know he need to improve his qualy cause his losing ground to Ocon 6 thents here in barcelona its huge
if Alonso starts from 5th with his race craft he will have an outsider chance to finish on podium on a lucky day. generally he is mighty on race day in barcelona. as an ardent fan of him i am moving my optimism to race day :)

If you account for the mistake it is probably 3 or 4 tenths. T15 is where you build speed for your hotlap and clearly he wasn't able to do that but it is certainly his fault. But Alonso has very good race pace, as we saw last week in Portimao.

I thought he had all the sectors just never put it together in one lap in Q3.

ALONSO 21.8 2 sector 29.124 3 sector 26.903
Those are only the best sector times. On the final Q3 hotlap it was Alonso 22.003, 29.241, 26.903. But like I said that final lap started badly and went on badly. If you account for that first sector the difference was probably about 4 tenths in quali, which is still a lot. Ocon was really good. Looking forward to the race.

No he will improve for sure he just did a bad preparation in his last lap and i think Ocon is in the best fotm in his life and it take him all year to beat ricciardo last year

We have this discussion every week. Only 41 more races to go.

Is that's the definition of insanity?

Easy too kick him when he's down. Harder to keep the faith in hard times.

Got traffic and then cold tyres, in Q2 was ahead of Ocon and the whole weekend has shown great pace for a car wasn't even in the points last two races. they are just at the level with Mclaren more or less without the engine improved or developed this year. But haters will always be there.

Good effort by the team, the car seems to be were it belongs now!
They need to keep that level of pace through the season.

It will also help FA recover and get back to his speed in qualy.

Great lap by Ocon. It came out of nowhere for me since I was expecting that both drivers would cover position 8-10. Alonso was kinda unlucky, but he still needs to improve his Saturday performance. With a decent start it is possible to score big points, however, I am kinda afraid about the tyre wear, might be a problem for Alpine as well as Ferrari
