MADRID, 11 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Spanish pilot Fernando Alonso (Alpine) has lamented the mechanical problem that has forced him to abandon the Italian Grand Prix and has acknowledged that he had had "some energy problem in the engine" from the beginning, and hopes that it is not " very broken" to be able to continue using it in future races and not have to penalize.
"I had had an energy problem in the engine the whole race, it cut off very early on the straights and it was difficult to maintain a battle. In the end we retired the car due to I don't know what problem exactly, but something with the engine as well. too broken to be able to use it in the next races," he told DAZN.
The Spaniard, who started sixth due to penalties for much of the grid, had to retire on lap 32 due to a hydraulic pressure problem in his Alpine. With this, he put an end to his streak of ten consecutive tests managing to finish just on the day that equaled the Finn Kimi Raikkonen as the driver with the highest number of races in the 'Great Circus' (350).
