The Alpine F1 Team achieved their qualifying goal for the Styrian Grand Prix of making it into final qualifying, unfortunately it was only with one of the Alpine cars.

Fernando Alonso did an excellent job to make final qualifying and put his car in ninth place for Sunday’s race, Esteban Ocon however failed to make it out of qualifying one and will line up from seventeenth.

Alpine’s Racing Director Davide Brivio is pleased with Alonso’s performance but knows that an analysis needs to be carried out to understand Ocon’s struggle.

“Fernando did a good job and we achieved our target of getting into Q3. He also seemed to enjoy qualifying, particularly in Q2 when he put together a very strong lap. Unfortunately, we couldn’t use this potential with Esteban, and we need to analyse and understand the information to get in better shape for tomorrow. We need to take every opportunity in the race with both cars; the weather could be changeable, and the field is so tight that there is every hope of a good finish.”
