After a frustrated first race, Fernando Alonso faces his second Grand Prix with Alpine with better knowledge of the car. The Asturian claims to have returned to the Formula 1 with a different mentality and with more experience after having entered other categories. However, this Thursday he confessed that he needs to improve. «I’m not comfortable«He surprised.
After answering some questions from the team’s fans, the Spaniard had to hold a virtual press conference for some media. There, Alonso spoke about what he expects for this Grand Prix that will take place in Imola, a circuit very remembered by him. The pressure exerted by various media and especially the expectation still does not conform to Alonso.
“I do not feel comfortable”
Alonos assured that although he is in good physical and conductive shape, he understands that there is a lot of pressure to improve. I feel good, honestly. At this start of the season we have a great weight on our shoulders, and despite taking so many races in Formula 1, the fact of returning is as if it were the first time for me in many respects “, he declared.
On the other hand, Alonso was honest about his performance and confirmed that he still has a long way to go. «I still don’t feel comfortable pushing the car to the maximum. Here I come with a very positive mind and I want to enjoy more than I did in Bahrain, I think it will be more fun, “said the two-time Formula 1 World Champion.
Souvenir from 2005
This week the most exciting battle in recent years was remembered. The duel between Fernando Alonso and Michael Schumacher in the 2005 San Marino Grand Prix. There the Asturian took a great victory. I don’t remember everything that happened. I was so focused on the championship that maybe I didn’t keep my emotions. The repercussion then was greater than what I had and I remember now, “said the Spaniard.
