During the last Formula 1 races there have been discomfort at Aston Martin over how its drivers bear the brunt of some of the stewards’ decisions of the FIA. Fernando Alonso was sanctioned at the Australian GP for what they considered potentially dangerous driving, as they understood that the way he slowed down on a curve caused George Russell’s accident, who was chasing him with the Mercedes.

Subsequently, Spanish was penalized again, in China, for a touch with Carlos Sainz in the sprint race, while Lance Stroll was also penalized for crashing into the rear of Daniel Ricciardo’s RB under the Safety Car, decisions that the green team boss, Mike Krack considered them “frustrating” and “unfair.”

But there is more. This Saturday, in the sprint in Miami, the man from Oviedo was harmed by Lewis Hamilton’s aggressive maneuver on the inside of Turn 1at the beginning of the race, which caused a four-car multiple accident in which Stroll and Lando Norris were also involved. Alonso ended up with a puncture that ended all his options.

The Asturian openly complained that the seven-time world champion was not sanctioned for what happened because “he is not Spanish.” And four hours later, after qualifying for the long race this Sunday, He still thought the same about how the FIA ​​treats him.

Yes, I feel that nationality matters“Alonso said.”And I will talk to Ben Sulayem [presidente de la FIA], with the Federation, whatever. I need to make sure there is nothing wrong with my nationality or anything that could influence any decision“.

Not only for me, but also for the future generation of Spanish drivers. They have to be protected. He had to make room, because Hamilton was coming from the inside without control of the car. If I do that, I’m sure they’ll punish me,” he explained.

The two-time champion felt even more frustrated this Saturday because the disappointing qualifying session he experienced in Miami, leaving him out of Q3 in a distant 15th positionsuffering in the tight battle that takes place in the middle of the Formula 1 grid.

“[Estoy] a little disappointed with the ranking for us. 15th in Q1 and 15th in Q2, I didn’t have much pace today,” he admitted.We’ve made some changes to the setup since this morning, but looking at the times, they probably haven’t worked out as we expected. and we are a little less competitive than normal.

The car understeered a lot in high speed corners, and oversteered a lot in low speed corners.. I didn’t feel any grip in any of the runs. For two tenths, you can be 8th or 15th. We’re on the wrong side of that group. [la zona media]since we have been on the good side in the last races,” he continued.

It’s going to be a tough race. Hopefully, with Lance starting 11th we will score some points. With me in 15th position it will be very difficult“Alonso stressed, without being too optimistic for this Sunday’s race in the United States.
