In the round-up: Fernando Alonso says McLaren’s tweaks to improve the car’s top speed worked.
What they say
I think we tested already a couple of things today. They were on the positive side. I think we picked up a little bit of extra speed compared with the previous races so I’m quite happy with those changes. It didn’t compromise the corners for the slow speed sectors so more things to come. I know it’s going to be one of our weaknesses this weekend but hopefully less than other races.

Love the track here in Baku. Always lots of adrenaline in my veins driving a f1 car but when you’re millimetres from the walls (or sometimes kissing them 😅) there is much more, it’s a nice feeling. At times we were competitive today but we need to find a bit more tomorrow. We are all working on it 👍 @tororosso @hondaracingf1 @gettysport
