    OFFICIAL #F1 Report: Alpine F1 - Belgian GP Preview

    2021 FORMULA 1 BELGIAN GRAND PRIX PREVIEW

    Alpine F1 Team previews the twelfth race weekend of the 2021 FIA Formula 1 World Championship, the Belgian Grand Prix.

    Drivers Esteban Ocon and Fernando Alonso and Executive Director Marcin Budkowski share their thoughts on the legendary Spa-Francorchamps.

    Esteban Ocon: "I was not expecting to be entering this race after the summer break as the latest Formula 1 race winner! It's still an incredibly special feeling and it was very well timed as I've spent the last couple of weeks relaxing with family and friends letting it sink in…I can tell you, it definitely feels real now! Now the time is to focus on restarting the season and that begins in Belgium. We enjoyed the moment in Hungary and, of course, repeating that feeling would be fantastic, but we will remain realistic and do our best for a strong result. The weather might be interesting so, if it's dry or wet, we will be ready to take any opportunity."

    Fernando Alonso: "I took some time to recharge my batteries as it's been a long first half of the season. I've done some cycling and spent time with family and friends. It wasn't long before I went back out onto the racetrack though, and I had some fun at my karting track back home. Spa is a great circuit and a pleasure to race on in a Formula 1 car. Taking Eau Rouge flat in these modern cars will be amazing. It's quite a traditional circuit in a way and always provides a good race for the fans. The weather can sometimes be unpredictable, so we have to capitalise on any opportunity like how we did in Budapest."

    Marcin Budkowski: "We head to Spa on the back of winning the last Grand Prix before the summer break, which, clearly, was not something we were expecting! It wasn't a win based on full, outright performance as some external circumstances contributed, but the opportunity came to us and we were there to grab it in style - as we led 67 of the 70 laps of the race. Even though a few weeks have passed since the Hungarian Grand Prix, there is still a good buzz within the team as we are heading to Belgium. It was also fantastic to see Esteban bounce back after a few difficult races and score his first Grand Prix win. It's a very important milestone for the Team and a huge morale boost for everybody in Enstone and Viry. Now we know how good victory tastes, we will work even harder to achieve our goals and become a regular contender in the future."
