The pilot of McLaren Fernando Alonso has called the race at albert Park one of the best in my life.
Two-time world champion started 12th. At the beginning of the race the Spaniard has won back one position, and on the 14th lap when he came Romain Grosjean climbed to 10th place, which was occupied before the problem occurs with the suspension at the end of the race.
“It was probably the best race of my life at the moment, – quotes Alonso AUTOSPORT. – Haven’t had such an uncompetitive car, because we arrived here with virtually no winter training, had very much to save fuel and wasting about half a second per lap.
Nevertheless, I claimed the points, which was quite unexpected. In the end, to finish the drive failed, but I guess it was really one of the best races for me.”
The Spaniard added that in the next races McLaren are unlikely to compete for such a high position.
“As I said, we have a few such stages, and in the next race it will be impossible to qualify 13th and to fight for points,’ said Alonso. Is a difficult track, very narrow, very bumpy, so you need the experience.
On regular routes, our position will be lower, so you need as quickly as possible to improve the machine, otherwise we are expecting a very disappointing race.”
