Alonso win three times with top podium in this season and he is leading drivers’ championship, Hungarian GP qualifying he was not able took podium, tomorrow he will start from sixth on the grid.
“In the dry, we are not yet able to fight for the very top places, and we are well aware of that,” said Alonso. “Usually, in the race, the situation improves and so we hope we can finish in the top four or five when it’s time for the chequered flag.
“Our aim will be to mark our closest rival in the drivers’ classification and today we know we will be starting ahead of him. Let’s see what the situation will be tomorrow evening.”
“We were expecting a very difficult qualifying and so it was,” he added. “We saw at least eight cars – two McLarens, two Force Indias, two Red Bulls and Lotus, running very competitively and therefore just getting to Q3 was in itself a difficult target to reach,” said Alonso.
“We did it and we also managed to slightly improve the handling of the car in the final part, working on the tyre pressures and the front wing. We definitely didn’t get a perfect lap: we lost a handful of tenths in a few corners.”
“We will have to be super concentrated, especially in how we manage the tyres. It’s true that overtaking is definitely not easy here, but tomorrow, it might yet rain and we know that can change everything.”
