Fernando Alonso admits that Ferrari didn’t have its usual race pace in Korea, having already realized after practice that it would be a tough weekend.
Alonso finished sixth at Yeongam, behind Nico Hulkenberg and Lewis Hamilton.
“Normally on Sunday we have a good pace, but here also on Sunday we didn’t have the performance we expected,” he said. “We saw on Friday a little bit, the long runs were not as good as other Grands Prix, and we knew that maybe the race was tough, and unfortunately we confirmed this feeling today. We were not so good at the start, in Turn 3 we lost a position to Nico, and then we were all the race behind Hulkenberg, which obviously also doesn’t help the tires. We didn’t have the pace, but hopefully in Suzuka we can come back to a better one and fight for the podium again.”
