The Alpine F1 did a good job on Friday. In the first training session, Fernando Alonso conducted aerodynamic tests, and then, together with a partner, tested the tires. During the start training, Esteban Ocon had problems with the gearbox, and the team is looking for the cause.
Fernando Alonso (7th): “Today reminded me of my first acquaintance with a new track. Perhaps, after last year’s clutch problems, it was so for everyone. But now the clutch is back to normal.
During training we didn’t change much in the car, mainly working with the tires. The main variable is the weather in qualifying, but we must be prepared for any weather. “
Esteban Ocon (8th): “Nice Friday – this training turned out to be some of the most interesting of the season. Arriving in Turkey, we did not know what the conditions would be, but it turned out that everything is much better than last year – the grip was very high, perhaps one of the best.
It’s great to race here in such conditions. We performed well in the first training session, we were constantly in the top five, and in the second – in the top ten. We’ve learned a lot today that we can use tomorrow, so I’m curious to see what happens. “
Davide Brivio: “A productive day. Compared to last year, the track condition has improved markedly – the grip was good from the very beginning of the first training, so the riders were able to quickly get into a rhythm.
Esteban and Fernando showed good speed and gave positive comments about the behavior of the car. We tested different settings and ideas on how to improve in the second workout, and we have some ideas that need to be improved further. We will continue to work and see what the weather will be like tomorrow – rain is promised. It was important to practice well, now we are looking forward to continuing the weekend. “
