Fight.” The world champion was in an interview with Le Figaro.
When asked about the fight between Esteban Okon (13th in the Bahrain Grand Prix) and Alonso, he will maintain a very balanced balance, which will exchange blows in terms of performance. “It’s normal to have a psychological race between two drivers.
