Alpine F1 Nears Points Amidst Growth and Setbacks

Alpine F1 Shows Progress in China GP Despite Pit Lane Penalty

22/04/2024

Alpine F1 edges closer to scoring as they display significant progress in China, despite ongoing challenges.

Alpine F1 achieved its best result of the year with Esteban Ocon’s 11th place finish in China.

However, the team was fined 10,000 euros for an incident where Pierre Gasly was released too early, leading to a collision with one of his mechanics.

“It was a race full of incidents with several safety car deployments. We had to remain vigilant and ready to respond, which we did with a well-executed double stop,” said Bruno Famin, the team director.

“Esteban ran a strong race and was close to scoring points, just missing out. Pierre also made a good comeback after being delayed in his first stop. Fortunately, no one was injured and we will investigate the causes of this incident to prevent it in the future.”

Famin acknowledges that the team still has work to do despite the progress made, and he takes the opportunity to commend those who helped bring an upgraded car to Shanghai: “This Sunday showed that we still have work to do.”

“We must continue to push for ever more performance as a team as we did not have enough. A big thank you to the factory teams, who made great efforts to bring new parts to Shanghai that worked as expected.”
