The Portuguese GP from Formula 1, third race of the year, will measure the resilience of a Fernando Alonso that had a bad classification, without palliative. Surpassed with solvency by his partner Esteban Ocon, who will start 6th, the Spaniard will look for the points as a lesser evil and, above all, a better feeling than on Saturday.
With Valtteri Bottas on pole, Lewis hamilton behind him and Max verstappen on the prowl to try to repeat victory, although it will be a difficult race on a complex track and with the wind as a surprise guest.
In this sense, it can give a lot to talk about Carlos Sainz. The Madrilenian comes out 5th, confirming his good adaptation to Ferrari, and if he has a good race (part with the handicap that he will go ‘against the grain’ in the tire strategy) he can give the bell.
