BELGIAN GRAND PRIX
Circuit Spa-Francorchamps
27-29 August 2021





Fernando Alonso resumes his first year back in Formula 1 at one of the calendar’s most enjoyable racetracks at Spa-Francorchamps. The two-time Formula 1 World Drivers’ Champion will look to pick-up where he left off following a season best fourth place finish at the Hungarian Grand Prix.



Well the dust has truly settled after that memorable Hungarian Grand Prix for the team; how do you reflect on the weekend?


It was a fantastic result for the team and for Esteban claiming his first win in Formula 1. We looked quite good all weekend and it was nice to see both cars in Q3 on Saturday. Then, when you mix rain and the Hungaroring usually you get some exciting results, and this is what happened on race day.


We stayed calm throughout the entire race and executed a fantastic game plan. I was quite happy with fourth too and my best result of the season. As a team we’ve now had a taste of this success and we’re targeting more of these memories in the future.




You’ve had a short break since then, what did you get up to during the summer shutdown?



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.


I’m happy to have had the short break but I feel we built some good momentum towards the shutdown and now we must carry this through to the second half of the season. I always enjoy the first race back after the break, and there are still lots of points up for grabs with the midfield as tight as ever.  



The Spa-Francorchamps circuit is a fan and driver favourite, what makes it so special for Formula 1?



It’s 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.


We have a busy triple header coming up with two traditional tracks in Spa and Monza, with a new one for Formula 1 in Zandvoort. Our aim is to score as many points as possible and build on the momentum and team spirit that we have shown from Hungary.
