Alonso’s ‘one-ina-mil­lion’ blow

Autosport (UK) - - RACE CENTRE -

Fer­nando Alonso’s race lasted only un­til lap four, when he re­tired with a wa­ter leak af­ter pick­ing up de­bris on the first lap. Alonso started 12th and held the po­si­tion in the early stages. Then Es­te­ban Ocon clipped the back of Nico Hulken­berg’s Re­nault at Turn 3 and lost part of his front wing, which slid to the out­side of the track and be­came lodged in Alonso’s Mclaren. “It was a sad day,”said Alonso, who had ev­ery chance of fin­ish­ing in the points hav­ing failed to do so in the pre­vi­ous three races.“we’ve been un­lucky with some of the de­bris from the Force In­dia in front of us land­ing in our car. It’s a one-in-amil­lion pos­si­bil­ity to have a DNF.”
