The 2nd time Alonso beats Ocon in Quali. Another Red flag but I think Alonso had him on pace.

shame that the first run of Alonso in Q3 was with used tyres, he was in new ones for the last run before Tsunoda crash

getting a tow gives such a advantage, btw alonso's first lap in q3 was set on used softs, hoped to see him on new set of softs but it is what it is

Well he has a almost new set of softs for the race that he can use if they go two stop.

Not getting even one clean lap on new tyres was painful but heyho Alo made the top ten so let’s see what both cars can do tomorrow.

I think it just might be better to two stop with the big possibility of overtaking so positions might be ok if it’s like this.

I expect accidents tomorrow. That's usually play like a lottery, we'll see how it goes. Definitely opportunity to use those soft tires though.

Yes. Two stop is best option. otherwise you sit duck and others will over take you.
15 laps 1 pit for medium.
36 laps second pit for soft to end of the race.

Not sure what's going on, if we can't switch on these tires ....at what point do we switch to meduims ?


I see no communication between Fernando and the team, I can't imagine there is a car problem. He was running faster carrying 15 laps more fuel and used Softs...

Embarassing pace from Alpine, if they don't have a problem with the car.

Alonso saved the day. Still Tyre isssues and the first stop was called at the wrong time. Alonso should have pitted not before the haas
