Alonso fires back after Las Vegas GP: “The show may have been good, but…”


Fernando Alonso didn’t have one of his best races this weekend. The Asturian finished ninth in the Las Vegas GP after finding himself in a very complicated situation in the first corner. In 18th position, with car damage and the whole race ahead.

Undoubtedly, a delicate situation in a circuit unlike any other and it didn’t seem to leave a good taste in his mouth. “We need a balance, as we said this week. It’s not very fun to drive this kind of circuit at a speed of 360 kilometers per hour with no grip, no visibility, bouncing and things like that.”, he complained after the race.

The two-time world champion reflects the priorities that Formula 1 should have.I think we have to balance the championship and balance the calendar. “I think that’s what we’re doing, but I don’t think it’s the only way to go,” he said before sending the next message on the American route.

I know that the spectacle from the outside may look good, but these cars are not made to take corners at 80 km / h. These cars were built to go to Suzuka, in Barcelonaat Silverstone and maximize the potential of F1″ he said.

Regarding the race itself, Alonso declared that they “did more than we thought. Lance (Stroll) started 19th and finished 5th in the lead, and To me we lost the opportunity to do more, but as much as possible… tenth in the time trial, 9th in the race, same car in the points, we have to see the positive side.
