Monaco GP – Alonso expects rain on Sunday: “It’s going to be a chaotic race”

After having left a good feeling in the first stages of the qualifying session, Fernando Alonso was unable to finish his last flying lap when he hit the protections due to a braking error that left him out of the game.

despite staying on the verge of falling eliminated in Q2 in one more Grand Prix, Fernando Alonso saved the furniture by hundredths after not improving as much as the others in his second attempt of this qualifying round, thus interfering among the ten fastest in the Principality.
