Alonso: Aston F1 must learn lessons from “outstanding” Williams
Fernando Alonso, the Spaniard driver for the Aston Martin F1 team, qualified in 10th position for the race, which is his worst grid position this season. He acknowledges that the team needs to improve its straight-line performance and understand why they are lagging behind Williams on high-speed tracks. Alonso believes that the remaining races on the calendar will be more favorable to their car’s characteristics, giving them hope for better results. Despite not getting a tow in qualifying, Alonso admits that it wouldn’t have made a significant difference in their position. He emphasizes the need to strengthen the car for tracks like Monza where aerodynamics and straight-line speed are crucial. On the other hand, his teammate Lance Stroll had a more challenging time due to no running on Friday and experiencing technical issues during the qualifying session.
