Fernando Alonso crossed the finish line of the Dutch GP in seventh place, but was ‘rewarded’ with Carlos Sainz’s penalty and moved up to sixth place on the timesheet. After the dispute in Zandvoort, this Sunday (4), the two-time world champion celebrated the result and praised Alpine’s performance.

“I really enjoyed it. I think today was probably the best race of the year as far as driving is concerned. Very demanding, physical. For us it was 71 qualifying laps today. In the beginning we had to overtake AlphaTauri on the track, and then the stint 40 laps on the hard tires were like qualifying. Just when I thought the race was under control, the safety car happened and ‘reset’ everything. Very good strategy from the team to use the hard compounds so we can take advantage of the pace of the car, so a lot of gratitude,” said Alonso.
