Both F1 world champions are looking forward to his expectations this season, and he can’t wait for the changes to the rules next year
Fernando Alonso A detailed analysis of his return to Formula One was conducted in a meeting with the Argentine media.Asturian people explained their expectations Alpine A521 And his expectations for this year. He also hopes to remain calm in 2022, this year he hopes he will be competitive, eager to win and the podium.
“F1 has not changed much from two years ago. The dominant force is the same as it is now. For me, the biggest attraction is the new regulations that were originally scheduled for 2021 but have been postponed to 2022. I stayed this year. During the transition season, I have already lived in the team, and the good news is that I have not left F1. In short, I returned to the “Big Circus” a year before the change of rules. This is the real reason for my return.”
“It has been a very interesting year for the central region. In a few tenths of the time, we have several teams, which means that we will have to fight hard every weekend to win or lose these positions. So, it’s a huge challenge for us. Strictly speaking, we didn’t set a goal. We want to reach the highest level in every game. We want to fight in season 3 and hope that we can get what we want. Just as As I said before, many of us are looking at 2022. We know that this year is a continuation of 2020. The championship and the winning races are actually unique to Mercedes and Red Bull. We have seen it in 2020. . Long-term work thinking”.
“I don’t think this is a particular problem for Alpine. The new regulations and the restrictions on the ground on the car have reduced the aerodynamic performance of all teams. Some people have done more work on that part of the car, while other teams All in all, there are always many ways to find the benefits that the Confederation usually tries to take away from the team. I think in the third quarter of last year, Renault ranked sixth and seventh. This year seems to be more difficult to achieve this goal. With 2020 Compared to Renault’s race, it’s much more difficult. Obviously, we need to improve. We think that the car floor has affected us more or less. What we need to continuously improve is the concept of the car.”
“It’s so special to be back at the starting line. In all the regular races that are so typical of F1, I once again felt a lot of emotion. In the first lap, I was full of adrenaline. At Le Mans, you were 24 hours ahead of time, and In Indy 500, you also have a long-term vision; in F1, the starting point is almost the opposite; you know, at the first corner, this is almost an opportunity you have to surpass. Once again. I have a good weekend. Very satisfied. Emotionally speaking, it is very tense. And it will continue to become more tense because it is back to the routine I already know. Of course, the first day was very special.”
“It’s not difficult to adapt to the experimental protocol caused by the coronavirus. I have seen how to participate in several races with the team last year. I have seen how it feels to be on the track without spectators. Obviously, you miss the stands. People on the Internet also miss fans, but at the same time, our workload on the track is reduced. We don’t have too many promotions, marketing or all these things. From our point of view, what can be more peaceful What? Of course, we have more free time.”
“After leaving, I face challenges. I want to participate in the WEC and Le Mans 24 Hours. I also hope to win the “Triple Crown”. The experience in Dakar has caught my attention. Sports career, but the opportunity will appear in 2020 , I don’t think I should miss it. When I go through all of this, I think the biggest challenge is to go back to F1. Discover again how it is, with the emergence of new regulations coming in 2022, see how these cars will be Development. In my opinion, there are many factors that are very attractive to me to return to F1. In my opinion, the biggest challenge is “F1”.
“It is still difficult to draw conclusions after the first race. Especially since historically, Bahrain has always been a very specific track in terms of car performance. In other teams, the order and ranking of cars are not always so typical. I hope It will take two or three games to determine the strengths and weaknesses of our team. I think due to bad luck, we have to withdraw from the game (Sandwich wrap). So far, our car is very sturdy and has zero mechanical failures, which has provided us with the opportunity to develop and understand it very well. This is reliable. The aerodynamics must be improved. You must learn and develop it. Two-tenths or three-tenths of you can be the sixth or seventh car, or the fourteenth or fifteenth car. We have the potential for improvement, and this is what we will try. “
“This is a continuation of 2020. The car has changed, but not much. Mercedes and Red Bull are the candidates to win the race, so they will be the ones competing for the championship. Hope we can see a fierce battle. In addition to the battle on the podium, there is also a very interesting championship game: from fifth to fifteen or eighteen, the difference between them is two-tenths or two-thirds. This will be in every This weekend changes, depending on how the car adapts to each track. I am excited and excited about the equality of existence from the inside. I hope that it is also exciting and interesting from the outside. In this sense, I think This sport does not know what is beneficial. It will happen in every game.”
