Alpine F1 Team’s Racing Director Davide Brivio is pleased with the productive start to the Spanish Grand Prix as the team look to build on a fantastic result that saw both drivers scored double points in Portimao last weekend.

The French-based team showed potential at the Portuguese Grand Prix as the team achieved a seventh and eighth finish, despite a difficult start to the season. Alpine brought in a few upgrades in Portugal, and the team assessed further aero items on the A521 in the first free practice session. 

However, the afternoon session was a real eye-opener as both drivers finished in the top ten as the teams worked on qualifying simulations. Esteban Ocon finished the afternoon session in fourth, one-hundredths quicker than his team-mate Fernando Alonso who was fifth fastest. 

Brivio was pleased with today’s action at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, but insists the work continues throughout the weekend as they aim for another weekend of good results.

 “It was a busy day for us, especially with our work in FP2 this afternoon on both low and high fuel. 

“We tested a few different items on both cars, which gives us some good information to go through. 

“We know this track is challenging, especially for our car in the past, so we can be pleased with this productive start to the race weekend.

“ Of course, the work continues tonight and tomorrow morning in order to be ready for when it really counts.”
