The pilot of McLaren Fernando Alonso not only finished sixth at the Hungaroring, but also set the fastest lap at the end of the Hungarian Grand Prix.
“Honestly, winning the fastest lap in the race was a surprise to me – said Alonso’s comments to Sky Sports. – Originally we were hoping for seventh-eighth place, but was able to finish in sixth position and took advantage of it.
We know that during the season there are three or four weekend, during which we will be competitive. We are trying to maximize your results in these races. At this stage, we coped with the task.
I couldn’t finish higher than sixth and fastest lap – a gift for the team, and we accept it.
During the race I was fighting with Carlos [Sainz]. After the pit stop I was able to pass only two fast lap on the new tires. I made several attacks in the style of kamikaze, and it worked”.
