Penalised Alonso optimistic after Russian GP

Fernando Alonso spotted his 250th Grand Prix race with an optimistic reaction after the Russian GP. McLaren duo Button and Alonso finished ninth and tenth respectively.

But, following the race, the Spaniard lost one place due to a 5-second penalty for corner cutting.

“A very positive weekend for us,” he said, before learning later that he was to be given a five-seconds penalty.

“It is the first time we have both finished in the points so it is a nice result in a place where we did not think we could be competitive.

“It seems we are going in the right direction, making good progress. Hopefully we’ll find some more performance in the USA.

“The car performed quite well in the race and we seemed to take care of the tyres more than the others. I’m happy with the weekend.”

Alonso’s penalty promoted Dutch teenager Max Verstappen of Toro Rosso to 10th place, the Spaniard added that he expecting his team can improve at Austin on October 25th.
