In Russia ended among the points, but a penalty after the race for ignoring the limits of the track took him out of the top ten positions. In the united States rolled into the points during a great part of the test, but on the last lap, and with a McLaren very touched after the incident in the first curve of an electrical fault, was overtaken by Ricciardo. Came eleventh, but after two great prizes waiting you can finally add. The Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez is not the best for your car, but is confident of repeating what Austin: “I really enjoyed the race, it was without a doubt one of the most exciting races for us so far this year. It was a fight hard, but we did not give up. I hope that we can repeat some of those battles in Mexico, although it will be a hard struggle in a circuit that on paper is not suited to our car”.

The spaniard wants to go to a new track: “it’s Going to be interesting, since we don’t have data, and some conditions are unknown, which gives emotion. Go to a grand prix in a place where this generation of riders has not been run will be something special, in addition in a site with a great reputation”. As well analyzes the champion path, which makes its debut this season in the calendar: “from what I have seen, it is a great design with curves interesting, and the combination of high speed and new asphalt will mean that it will be very important to get a good setup from the beginning in order to have the maximum aerodynamic downforce. It is a new and exciting chapter for the Formula 1, and I am looking forward to seeing how it gives us”.

Jenson Button has passed after the last great prize, and now Alonso occupies the 17th position in the championship, just behind his team mate, 5 points from the other driver for McLaren. In Texas only Fernando rode the new power unit Honda, but later clarified that only an improvement of one tenth. The Spanish rider not scored since July (in fact, only been joined in two of the 16 contested trials), and wants to break that bad losing streak. He has published in his account of Instagram a photo saying goodbye to Circuit of the Americas and flying already headed to Mexico, where in just three days will get the car. We hope that with better luck than on american soil.
