In Australia, Alonso qualified fourth, but his highest position on the starting line for an Aston Martin was second last time out in Saudi Arabia because Charles Leclerc was disqualified. Despite this, the Aston Martin driver was happy with the team’s and his own advancement.


“I feel good. Obviously, yeah, it was very tight, within one or two-tenths there were a lot of cars and we were on the upper part of that group in Q1 and Q2 – I think I was P2. And then in Q3, [by] a couple of hundredths we missed the first row of the grid. (F1)
