Without time for rest, Fernando Alonso continues his frenetic season after winning unappealable at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, thanks to his competition on a night that has already passed into the history of motorsport. The next stop is Paul Ricard, where the Spaniard moves tomorrow to face the French GP of Formula 1.
“” After my experience at Le Mans, it’s great to stay in France to go to Paul Ricard. Winning the 24 hours of Le Mans still seems like a dream, it has been an incredible week. Now I start to believe it but I’m already looking forward to getting back in the car and running again. “The surprising thing is that it’s probably true.
“I’ve never run an F1 GP at Paul Ricard, but I loved testing there a few years ago I’ve seen the design of the new circuit configurations, I think it has the potential to be a super circuit, and going to new events is always exciting, since we are all in the same position, “says Alonso on the new stage, built on the historic Gallic layout of the 70s and 80s, popularly known as Le Catellet, name of the nearest town.
“As far as we know, it will be a tough race for cars and drivers, and a complicated technical challenge to adjust the cars, it seems that there are some overtaking opportunities, which will give us an exciting test.” After a couple of disappointing weekends , I hope we recover in France with a positive result, “says Alonso, who wants to resume the streak at the start of the season.
