The loss of power that prevented him from rounding off a great race in the points in the united States, and the problem of the electric motor only allowed to give one back in Mexico, are the two recent mishaps that has undergone Alonso in this long and negative season. For this reason, their main concern facing Brazil is the fragility of your engine: “The last couple of races have been frustrating in my side of the garage, since we’ve had a bit of bad luck with reliability problems. It is something we are always working hard, and we will put a special emphasis on this before the Grand Prix of Brazil, so that we will be able to get the most time possible on the track in the course of the weekend”.

The Spanish is, just ahead of Alexander Rossi, the pilot less kilometers has completed in the season. The data is even more worrying, when you analyze that Rossi has only played four races and Alonso has driven less than his compatriot Roberto Merhi, who has missed four great prizes. However, the champion ensures that you are improving, and stresses the importance of shooting in the face 2016: “we are Still seeing progress in our rate and small improvements in each area, career to career, so we know that it is important to keep your head down and keep pushing until the end of the season. Each race has, and the more we can learn, and to gather data on each track, the more information we have at our disposal during the winter and for the development of our package”.

Interlagos is not the path that best suits the McLaren, but it relies on a crazy race to get closer to the points: “we Knew that Mexico was going to be hard, and many of the characteristics of Interlagos are similar, with its steep sections and long straights. However, the circuit is amazing to drive, and always gives a lot of fun, so I’m looking forward to the weekend. It is a very special place and always look are unpredictable races there, so hopefully we can have a good time this weekend”. Alonso, finally, also had words for the audience that will attend this weekend at the Autódromo José Carlos Pace: “After the amazing support of the fans that we got in Mexico, I know that we will receive another warm welcome in Brazil. The atmosphere is always fantastic and the brazilian fans are very passionate”. does Not say, but surely think about it: as soon as you pass this race, before it will end this year black.
