Alonso returns to the front row of the starting grid in Canada. Fernando Alonso (Alpine) will start again from the front row of the starting grid at the Canadian GP which takes place this Sunday nine seasons after doing it for the last time.

Fernando Alonso (Alpine) dominated the last free practice session on Saturday, at the Canadian Grand Prix, the ninth round of the Formula 1 World Championship, ahead of Gasly, Vettel and his teammate Ocon. The times on the Gilles Villeneuve route were slower than usual, due to the meteorological factor of the rain.

In the qualifying session, the good feelings continued for the Spanish driver, who finished second behind Max Verstappen, in all the qualifying sessions. The Dutch Red Bull driver, with a time of 1.21.299, added a new Pole Position to his record, taking more than half a second from Fernando Alonso and Carlos Sainz.

However, the strategy outlined by Ferrari, in addition to a progressive improvement in race pace, returned the lead to Leclerc, who managed to take a 12-second lead over his pursuer, Max Verstappen. But everything began to go wrong for the Italian team in a seen and not seen. First it was Sainz who had to abandon the race due to a problem in the hydraulic system, when he was running in fourth position. And if everything seemed to go wrong, misfortune continued for Ferrari, because a few laps later it was Leclerc who left the race due to a problem in the power unit of his car, when he was leading the race comfortably. Therefore, what could have been a hard-fought victory for the current third-placed team in the World Championship ended up being a double for Red Bull’s men.

✔️ Name of the circuit: Circuit of Gilles Villeneuve

✔️ Length: 4,361 kilometers

✔️ Race distance: 70 laps (305.270 km)

✔️ Curves: 7 right – 6 left

✔️ Fastest lap record: 2019, Sebastian Vettel – 1:10.240 (Ferrari)

Along with the long straights, in Montreal we find strong braking and very technical turns. The braking is one of the hardest of the whole year, with six braking over 250 km/h. Something that really punishes the brakes of the single-seaters, which wear out a lot. With all this and no fast corners, you need a car with good traction coming out of slow corners, good top speed and good kerbing.

The Formula 1 race for the Canadian Grand Prix at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve, the ninth round of the Motoring World Championship, can be followed from DAZN, Movistar + and, minute by minute, through the La Vanguardia website.

The first stage of the championship has not been easy for Alonso, but after chaining three races getting into the points, this weekend the pace of the Alpine has surprised for good, to the point of starting on the front row, from second place.
