60 minutes before the start: Commentary by Fernando Alonso


Immediately after qualifying for the Canadian Grand Prix, Fernando Alonso promised to fight for the lead and attack Max Verstappen in the first turn. The Alpine driver said on Sunday that he would only attack Verstappen if he saw a real opportunity to take the lead.

Fernando Alonso «Everything will depend on how we will pass the first fifty meters. If I see a chance, I will try to overtake Max. We must not forget that I start from the wrong side, so if there are no opportunities to get ahead, I will not pretend to be a kamikaze. I have a privileged starting position and we want to take advantage of it.

The team ran a simulation of the race, which showed that we have almost no chance of a podium finish. Sixth-seventh place is our natural position, given the speed of the car. However, if Sergio Pérez or Charles Leclerc have problems today, then we will have a chance to compete for something more.”
