Fernando Alonso (Alpine F1) withdraws Steward’s criticism of the ruling at the Grand Prix of Miami. He excused that he was hot and said, “I fully support the FIA’s idea.”
At the Grand Prix of Miami, Fernando Alonso was penalized with two additional 5-second penalties and was eventually demoted out of the points range. “It was an incompetent steward,” “they weren’t very professional,” and “it’s impossible given F1’s professionalism and standards,” he criticized.
In response, the FIA is reportedly considering a penalty for Fernando Alonso. Freitas and Alonso were witnessed chatting.
In a post-race press release of the Spanish Grand Prix, Fernando Alonso withdrew his criticism of Steward. “Steward did their job in Miami,” he said.
“Looking back at Miami and Thursday, we’re looking at it another way now,” Fernando Alonso said.
“Steward did their job in Miami, and maybe we see things differently when it’s hot in the car.”
“We fully support the FIA’s ideas and would like to work with them to improve the show for our fans.”
Fernando Alonso finished 9th in the Spanish Grand Prix, which started from the end with a PU exchange penalty. It was the point earned since the opening round.
“It’s great to be able to finish with points today, especially after bad qualifying yesterday. I’m very happy,” said Fernando Alonso.
“Today we had a special atmosphere and we started from the end, but I feel like we managed to do a show for our fans. It feels like a bit of a win!”
“I hope I can continue to score points from here. I think there is still room for improvement on Sunday, but today I did a good job and managed well.”
