A weekend to forget for Esteban and Alpine at the British Grand Prix

British Grand Prix

Race Report

BWT Alpine F1 Team endured a weekend of frustration at the British Grand Prix with both Esteban Ocon and Pierre Gasly unfortunately retiring from the 52-lap race at Silverstone.

Esteban retired on lap nine after suffering a hydraulic leak on his A523, while Pierre was forced to pit with broken suspension after Lance Stroll’s careless move into Turn 16 six laps from the end of the race while fighting for the points.

The team looks forward to returning to Enstone and Viry before turning attention to the Hungary-Belgium double header.

Esteban Ocon, started P13, DNF:

“It’s not been our weekend and that is summed up by our race today. We had a decent start to the race, but it was over early for us with a hydraulic leak on the car. In the end, as a team, we did not score any points which is extremely disappointing. We need to regroup and react, especially given the leap some of our competitors have made over the last couple of races. Overall, we probably did not maximise the potential of the car this weekend so there are definitely many things to review to see how we can come back stronger. Budapest is next, one of my favourite tracks with some great memories, so we hope to bounce back and have a strong result.”
