Fernando Alonso It was a productive Friday
The pilot of McLaren Fernando Alonso in practice for the Mexican Grand Prix showed 7th result, becoming thus the leader of the middle group of the peloton. In the race the Spaniard will be fined for the replacement of the engine.Fernando Alonso "I'd say today was very positive and productive Friday. We covered a lot of laps, had a lot of things to test and got positive results. We were only seven tenths off the fastest time and two-tenths clear of Bottas, which surprisingly looks competitive on such a difficult track.We know it will be a difficult race in any case. To start with the tail of the peloton it is hard and beat is also pretty easy. To some extent we have to sacrifice this race to have a fresh engine in Brazil and Abu Dhabi. We still don't know where we'll be after qualifying, so let's see what decision will give us the least painful result.It was great to see so many people in the stands in the section of the Stadium. It's great that we here are so supportive".
