    OFFICIAL #F1 Report: Alpine F1 - United States GP Preview

    19 October 2021, 2021 Formula 1 United States Grand Prix Preview.

    Drivers Esteban Ocon and Fernando Alonso and Executive Director Marcin Budkowski share their thoughts on Austin.

    Esteban Ocon: "I really like Austin and I can't wait to race there. For me, I've not raced there since 2018, so I'm definitely excited. As a track, I feel like Austin is a cool mix of different circuits all rolled into one. After the unique uphill Turn 1, the following flow of corners is kind of like Suzuka or Maggots-Becketts at Silverstone. Then there's the long straight before a slightly tighter part, which is like the final sector in Mexico in a way. It's a great track, there are some fast corners, some interesting challenges at the wheel and also overtaking opportunities."

    Fernando Alonso: "It's always fun racing in the US and I do enjoy the circuit in Austin. It's one of the more challenging circuits on the calendar with each sector of the lap very different to the next. The characteristics of the track and the car can evolve during a lap, so it keeps you on your toes as a driver. It's also a track that allows overtaking, which is good. You're always guaranteed a good atmosphere in Austin and it's a nice place to visit. Let's see if our package can be competitive there and hopefully it'll be a dry weekend for a change!"

    Marcin Budkowski: "It's a tight fight for fifth in the Constructors' Championship since the start of the season, and we have seen pretty big points swings at a few races. We had a decent points advantage going into Turkey, but we knew it was far from comfortable. It has now shrunk and we will need to keep scoring consistently at every race and taking every opportunity for bigger points when it presents itself, while keeping a close eye on our competitors. It will no doubt go to the wire, but we have good momentum and are relishing the challenge!"
