Despite the missed podium, he does not miss a dig at his past team.

Fernando Alonso in Baku missed the podium for the first time in the 2023 Formula 1 season. In fact, the Aston Martin’s Asturian finished the Azerbaijan Grand Prix in fourth place, behind Charles Leclerc’s Ferrari and after passing Carlos Sainz’s Rossa. Despite this, at the end of the day came a jibe from him at the Maranello team.

“This was the worst weekend of the year for us. Despite this, however, we managed to fight for the podium against Ferrari. And Ferrari, on the other hand, was in one of the best weekends of its season. This was evidenced by the fact that Leclerc hit the pole position for the Sprint Race, for the main Grand Prix and was one second in front. But we managed to fight with him anyway,” Alonso explained.
