Fernando Alonso He knows he has everything against him to score a point in F1 US GP, but he will try. He will start from the bottom of the grid on Sunday with a car that has not adapted well to this American track. Starting with the last racing car without a beat, the feat is the capital.

We have a lot of new wheels, a lot of hard and medium wheels, so hopefully We take advantage of it and get some points.”
Developments and Strategy
“Yes, it can be overtaken. Logically, you should have an advantage of about 8 tenths or a second. It can only be achieved with wheels in better condition at that point in the race. Like I said, we have a lot booked on all the courses, but if There wasn’t a “safety car” or there wasn’t a moment in the race where we could deviate from everyone’s normal strategy, it would be hard to get past it. But let’s try. It’s a really twisted weekend in terms of competitiveness. Better to change the engine here and think in the following engines.
