Fernando Alonso's viral response to a child that excites the networks

A few hours from Saudi Arabian Grand Prixthe second of the 2023 season of Formula 1, Fernando Alonso lives a sweet moment at 41 years old. His skills are still at the highest level, his new aston martin car works wonderfully, he was on the podium in the previous GP and he will start in second position in the Jeddah Circuit grid.

In case there was any doubt about the confidence with which Alonso feels, you only have to see the response you recently gave to a child, which has gone viral on social media. This was recorded on Friday, one day before the qualifying day in which Alonso has managed to be third, but which will be worth the second position on the grid in the Saudi Arabian GP due to the sanction of ten places to Charles Leclerc.

Already in Jeddah, and when the boy asks Alonso what is the fastest lap he has done, he does not think about his exploits of the past but rather the immediate future for which he is preparing immediately comes to mind, and he answers: “The fastest lap? I think here tomorrow“.

Alonso’s great start to the season

The truth is Fernando Alonso is showing a spectacular performance with his new car. He has secured second position on the grid for this GP, and if things go well he has many chances to get back on the podium. In addition, this time the defending champion Verstappen will start in 15th position, since he had technical problems that forced him to abandon the qualifying phase.

Of course, he will still have in front of the other member of the Red Bull team, the Mexican Sergio ‘Checo’ Pérez. And, although Alonso is very confident in his abilities and in those of his car, he is also aware that today it is difficult to compete with Red Bull cars. The Asturian acknowledges that “they’re a little ahead of all of us“, and does not believe that it is possible to dispute this victory to Pérez.

However, it shows proud of the achievements he is already achieving with Aston Martin from the very beginning of the season, and excited about the next feats they can achieve. Hopefully we will see him do very fast laps in this Grand Prix as well, after his display in qualifying on Saturday.
