“It’s a shame to end the last day of pre-season tests so we have not been able to get the most out of our program. In the morning everything was going well: we have successfully worked on the program until that moment, until the car lost power in turn, said Alonso. – I had to stop her on the sidelines.
We managed quickly enough to start the car, but after a few laps on the track, he again stalled. We understand that it is necessary to conduct a more thorough investigation.
I’m glad I was able to get back on track after lunch: in such a situation is important for us each lap.
It is obvious that we have a lot of work prior to the race in Melbourne. I know that team works hard. We will be able to get answers to your questions as soon as the car returns to the factory”.
