F1 GP United States | Alonso will start from the back of the grid


Ferdinand Alonso will come out from the bottom of the United States GP from Formula 1 When mounting the fourth power unit of the course in its Alpine, changing all its elements. The Asturian already said in the Turkish GP I had planned to change the engine in the Istanbul Park, but he did not do it because of the good performance his car showed, which had allowed him to start from fifth position. He did not do it there for the result he was aiming for, but Gasly he threw the Oviedo in the first corner and this left him out of the points when he fought for fourth place. After that, he regretted having to choose one of the remaining tracks to change the engine on another track to face the last races of the year with a fresh engine. He had to choose a circuit where he could overtake, and that was the Circuit of the Americas.

The Spaniard will thus seek a comeback from the end of the grid on a track where the management of the tires will be key. For this reason, the Spaniard will be able to avoid soft tires for the race.

It should be remembered that this penalty is added to that of 5 places on the grid that Bottas has for changing only the combustion engine of his power unit, and those of Sebastian Vettel (Aston Martin) and Britain’s George Russell (Williams), also with a Mercedes engine, who completely changed the power unit, so they will start the race from behind together with Ferdinand.
