Alonso started the season in method, winning the season opener in Bahrain. Since then, but, he has only once completed on the podium after a string of unsatisfactory results. After the dominant performance of Red Bull over the last two races, Alonso highlighted the importance of finishing the gap during a indicator weekend for the team.
