Alonso and Sainz face their comebacks in Barcelona with different strategies

Fernando Alonso and Carlos Sainz will face the Spanish Grand Prix from tenth and sixth respectively. Although the Spaniard will opt for a more aggressive strategy after having come back in the last two races, the Madrilenian will be more conservative to avoid going backwards as happened in Portimao. “I’m trying to see what we can do tomorrow. Sundays are our most complicated day, it is where we usually go a bit backwards. The car in the race continues to have tire problems but let’s see if tomorrow we can reduce them ”, said the Ferrari driver after the qualifying session for the Spanish Grand Prix. Carlos Sainz does not forget that starting fifth in Portimao he finished eleventh, out of the dotted area. The Spaniard suffered serious graining problems after the second stint and will seek to better conserve his tires at the Spanish Grand Prix. “I must learn to manage the batteries in such situations,” added Carlos Sainz, critic, the race in Portimao. Alonso will be able to push his car more than SainzMore reliable than the Ferrari is showing this season Alpine. That is why Fernando Alonso will opt for a more aggressive strategy for the Spanish Grand Prix. “Once the second and third laps are finished, you will have little hope of the stops. Overtakings on the track are going to be few. You have to go out well and do a first lap as aggressive as possible, “said the Spaniard after the qualifying session. Despite the fact that Fernando Alonso will start the Spanish Grand Prix on the attack, he will have to pay attention to his rear-view mirror so that Lance Stroll, coming out eleventh, don’t beat him.”I have one of the best starters, Stroll, who comes out on the clean side, but hopefully a good start to consolidate those points,” he added. And the goal of Fernando Alonso in Montmeló is to be in the points for the third time consecutive. Heading into the fourth round of the World Cup, the Spaniard had set himself a priority objective to qualify better and did so in tenth position. Although the fifth place won by Esteban Ocon seems to indicate that he could have done better, Alonso is doing better on Sundays than on Saturdays. The Asturian went from fifteenth to tenth position in the Emilia-Romagna Grand Prix and from thirteenth to eighth position in Portugal. Unlike Carlos Sainz, Fernando Alonso knows that he can push his car more and that is what he will do in Barcelona. However, Carlos Sainz does not give up pressing at the start either. “The start is very important and we are going to try to go forward,” he said. Facing the Spanish Grand Prix, the Madrilenian will have to overcome the problems he has acknowledged having at Turn 10. “We made a good qualification, although my worst participation was in Q3. I had a hard time tracing Turn 10 because of the direction of the wind. We had pace to be fourth, but we have taken a step forward and it is positive, “he said. It could be a race to more than one stop With regard to strategy, Carlos Sainz had previously stated:” I would not rule out a race to more than one stop, with some overtaking, as we have seen in previous years. These last two years there have been more overtakings than in other years. I think it can be an interesting Grand Prix, a race that we can all enjoy both from home and on the track ”.The Spanish GP, more favorable to Sainz than to the Alpine In the face of the race, Marcin Budkowski, CEO of Alpine, stated: “After a fairly strong race in which we showed a good pace and managed to score points with both cars, we want to take advantage of this good momentum. Barcelona, historically, has not been one of our strongest tracks, but neither was Portugal last year. Our goal is to confirm our progress by putting both cars in Q3 and score more points. ”Carlos Sainz, for his part, hopes that he will continue his love affair with Montmeló:“ You know what I like about the Spanish Grand Prix, the Barcelona circuit . I have always been good at it, I think it is one of the circuits where I have achieved the most points in my sporting career in Formula 1, so the objective is to continue maintaining that good statistic and that good grade ”.
