«I got one of the super good games in Q2 and one of the super bad games in Q3»
«Happy, the truth is that we came with many doubts because the last slow circuit was Monaco and I think we were 17th, so we didn’t really know what was in store for us here in Hungary, “admitted Alonso.
“Being with the two cars in Q3 and going out tomorrow through the clean zone gives us the opportunity to score points and we are going to go for it. It was difficult to read the situation, more than on the track because of the tires », has advanced before explaining.
And, in the opinion of Fernando Alonso, Pirelli is supplying very different tires this weekend. “We have suffered a mind-boggling inconsistency all weekend. You put two identical games in theory and you have two completely different cars. That hurt me in Q3, because I think I got one of the super good games in Q2 and one of the super bad games in Q3. But I go out with the good set, so let’s see tomorrow, “he said in relation to the race.
