Dang it. I love his driving style. He is an old school pure bred racer. Just 100% when he can and razor smart with his car positioning

Ocon way behind Alonso in points. He needs to get his act together soon.

I told you Alonso can still cook! The car was a DOG on the straights, great in the corners, they ran way more rear wing than they probably needed.

Surprised by the lack of pace when the team were strong in places like Canada in the past. Maybe paying the price for not bringing the new engine this year. They are def slower than Ferrari, mclaren probably on a par with alpha Tauri.
I hope they deliver a great car next year.. I think Ocon and Alonso can race it..

Too much drag, new package added more downforce than anticipated at the rear.

Will take a little while to nail the balance.

Renault engines weakest put there now.
5hp behind Ferrari, 20hp behind Honda and 30hp behind Mercedes.

Working on new concept(split turbo) for next year. Should have been in already this year but there were problems on dyno.

Yeah race pace wasn’t great but Alonso pulled it out the bag with that restart. What a driver! I hope in France we can solve the race pace and get more out of one lap.

Correct me if I’m wrong but they didn’t use a new engine like everyone else?

They were well into the top 20% in top speed in quali their race stop speed was the same yet everyone else's top speed went up. They went from 3ird best top speed in quali to 14th in the race.
