Alonso and Alpine will tighten the nuts

"Fernando will demand many things from the team, but Alpine will also have high requirements for Alonso," predicts Sergey Sirotkin.


One of the great attractions that the 2021 Formula 1 World Championship presents is to contemplate the performance of Fernando Alonso at the wheel of the Alpine A521 three years after leaving the Gran Circo tired of not being able to fight for victories with McLaren.

Asked about this matter with little more than a month left before the preseason begins, Sergey Sirotkin, who last year was the reserve driver of the diamond brand, predicts in the Russian media 'Championat' that the battle between Alonso and Ocon al At the beginning it will be very close, in the same way that he predicts that Davide Brivio will not cut himself when demanding results from the two-time champion."I don't expect Ocon to be completely in the shadow of Alonso"

"I think that, at least in the initial phase, the fight between Alonso and Ocon will be very close. Besides, Esteban helped himself a lot by winning the podium. In Abu Dhabi he was I noticed that he seemed to have released a load from his shoulders, that he could roll more relaxed, and in races this is very important: when you're tense, you lose. Esteban will understand the team and the car better. I don't expect him to be completely in the shadow of Alonso. I think it will be very difficult for Fernando to be immediately at the level that Daniel put the Renault at. Fernando will certainly have many requirements for the team, but the team will also have high requirements for Fernando: to start the season immediately as much as possible. as hard as possible, "says Sirotkin.

It should be noted that Fernando has completed several days of training sessions with the RS18 and RS20 in recent months to get used to the team's procedures as soon as possible and reach the winter tests, predictably in Bahrain. well prepared. "The goal is clear in 2021, a year of preparation, of integration with the team. A podium would be fantastic, but in 2022 with the change in regulations, we dream of winning and being up again" .
