The Emilia Romagna Grand Prix has a maximum of 14º on weekends, and it may rain on Sunday
largeThe poor performance caused by the high temperature experienced by Fernando Alonso’s Alpine A521 in Bahrain this weekend does not seem to be a problem in Imola. The highest temperature in the area is expected to be 13 to 14°C In between, and there may be light rain on Sunday.
After qualifying for heat-sensitive cars in the FP1 and FP3 stages (daytime) in Bahrain, the Spanish driver has issued a warning. Alonso said: “With less heat, we have improved performance in an unprecedented way.”
As far as he is concerned, the technical director of the Marcin Budkowski team admitted that “this makes us a little scared”, but due to the high temperature in Bahrain, this ability has been significantly weakened. “We have to do some homework to understand why we are obviously not as competitive as night hours in high temperature periods. I don’t think it will be a problem in Imola or Portugal, but it may be in the summer months.” RaceFans.com” said.
“We are very satisfied with the test car [de pretemporada], But it’s fair to say that we were not satisfied with popular conferences. The first and third exercises were more difficult for us. We returned to a more representative level of competitiveness in the afternoon meeting, the second exercise and qualifying.
Budkowski said: “Before we really have to fight against those who are going to fight, we are still two-tenths or three-thirds away.” Budkowski has announced that they will be fighting this weekend.
