Fernando Alonso says that they are targeting striking his close title competitors, not vital for victory at the Monaco Grand Prix.
“Our target was to obviously to finish in front of Sebastian and in front of Lewis as they were with us in the world championship,” Alonso said.
“If you go race by race you concentrate on different drivers, and the next one will be Mark because now he’s second in the championship. So it will be interesting all through the season with the constant development of the car and the constant surprises that we are having in every race. You never know which one is set for pole and for the race win.”
“The race went pretty smooth after the start when I had contact with [Romain] Grosjean. So at that point I thought maybe the car was damaged or something but the car was perfectly fine so I kept running and I felt good. “
“I felt competitive, but obviously in Monaco it’s difficult with the traffic. We overtook Hamilton at the stop with a perfect time and a perfect pitstop again, so thanks to the team. I think we are in a privileged positions and well done to all of them.”
