Fernando Alonso did not start in the Grand Prix of Russia
“A sad situation, but there’s nothing I can do about it – quoted AUTOSPORT.com of the Spaniard. – As soon as we started the warm up lap, the car lost power.
On the radio I was asked to change the settings on the steering wheel to resume the work of the ERS. However I failed: at the end of the lap the car stopped. This time we are unable even to start.
Of course, I’m disappointed. We wanted to take part in the race, but these situations sometimes arise. It is a sport. You can’t control the reliability of equipment.
It’s hard to say what happened specifically: to analyze the fault. But it is obvious that this is a problem with the power plant.
It is hoped that we will be able to deal with all the failures as quickly as possible, because we haven’t finished a single race in 2017, and in one of the Grand Prix could not even start”.
