F1. Fernando Alonso’s “confusion” and his predictions about Carlos Sainz

Formula 1 returns this weekend with the Austrian Grand Prix, but Fernando Alonso has not forgotten what happened in last week’s race at Silverstone. Alonso, half-joking half seriously, complained that the stewards had not punished Charles Leclerc for a similar measure for which the Spaniard was punished in Canada.

Alonso finished fifth at Silverstone and before the press announced he was hoping to be fourth, “because Charles Leclerc moved three or four times to fight with Hamilton. I moved once to Canada and got a five-second penalty.” Fernando Alonso finished seventh in Canada, but a penalty kick for the hosts dropped the Spaniard to ninth and he lost two points. Alonso received a five-second penalty for “changing direction twice under braking” on the penultimate lap to defend his position against Valtteri Bottas, as the hosts justified. This version of the hosts did not convince Alpine and its manager and team manager, Otmar Szafnauer, declared that he was “not worthy” and once again lamented that they could not defend themselves in front of the hosts, which is what actually happened in Miami.
