Alonso, confident with the improvements of Alpine despite the little filming

After four consecutive grands prix in the points, Fernando Alonso entered the 2022 Formula 1 British Grand Prix brimming with confidence and extra motivation, thanks in no small part to Alpine’s latest spectacular upgrade package for the A522.

Despite the short time they were able to spend on the asphalt, the two-time Formula 1 world champion is confident that he will arrive well prepared for tomorrow’s classification, which seems to also be in the wet, just like in Canada, when after an exhibition he managed to be second .

“We would love to have spent more time on the track, but it’s the same for everyone! We will have to do a little extra work tonight to arrive as prepared as possible for tomorrow’s FP3 and qualifying,” Alonso concluded.

On the other hand, Matt Harman , technical director of Alpine , spoke about the new package of improvements that Alonso and Esteban Ocon have at their disposal: “We have brought some updates this weekend, mainly on the ground and in the chassis, which It has obviously caused some visual differences on the A522.”

“The main changes to the bottom are around the diffuser and the edges or ends, while at the top of the chassis we have a more pronounced hole to improve flow to the rear of the car.”

“It’s been exciting to see those new parts on the car today. In terms of our track time today, in FP2 we were able to run a bit more dry, so we have enough data to make some assessments going into the day. tomorrow”, concluded the one from Alpine .
