MADRID, 10 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The Spanish driver Fernando Alonso (Alpine) has assured that the Italian Grand Prix race, in which he starts sixth, will be "on the defensive" due to the number of 'top' drivers who will try to climb positions after being penalized, and believes that "scoring points" will be "the goal" this Sunday at Monza.
"Without the 'track limits', the lap was to be eighth; eighth or tenth, the truth is that we lacked a bit of rhythm. In the time trial we were left out of Q3 with a car - Esteban Ocon's -. It can be a bit of a defensive race, trying to score some points," he told DAZN.
On the start, the Asturian warned that "very fast cars are coming from behind". "I hope we are close to the points zone. We had the opportunity to change the engine here, which with all the penalties would have been good for us, but we had to do it with just one car, because if you don't lose the pace of the race and the opportunities Adding points tomorrow is the goal", he concluded.
