The Spanish Fernando Alonso assured that despite the abandonment in the Bahrain Grand Prix de F1 has been "a good day", since he has returned to experiment on his return to Formula 1 with the team Alpine the sensations and the "adrenalin" on the track, in addition to explaining that "In five or six races" can finally feel "comfortable" in the car.
“I wanted to finish the race, but it couldn't be. We have had some little problems… The brakes were the cause of the abandonment, but before we also had some problem with the batteries on the straights. It was a bad race, but an exciting one. It was also a good day for me: because of the anthem, because of the formation lap, because I was on the grid again… They were beautiful moments. We couldn't finish, but we already thought about Imola ”, pointed out in statements to DAZN after the race.
In this sense, the Asturian confessed that all Sunday was emotional. “In those first few laps, being in a fight with the other cars has made my adrenaline rise, even if they are cars in front of you. Your heart beats faster. It's a shame that we couldn't stay on the track a little longer, complete the race. The points were not going to be possible today or they were going to be very fair, so if something had to happen, better today, to learn from it and improve next time ", he said.
Finally, Alonso hopes to improve as the races go by. “I still have time in the car. To all the riders who have changed teams, such as Carlos Sainz, Daniel Ricciardo and Sebastian Vettel… We see that they need time. Imagine that multiplied by two and a half years. It is normal that things improve over time. I can't say exactly which points I have to spend more time on, but I'm sure in five or six races I'll be more comfortable than I was today. "
