Strong recovery effort brings BWT Alpine F1 Team double points haul in Spain

BWT Alpine F1 Team converted its lowly grid positions of twelfth and twentieth into seventh and ninth at the chequered flag after superb drives from Esteban Ocon and Fernando Alonso to bring home eight points from a scorching hot Spanish Grand Prix at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

Esteban charged through the field early on to propel himself into points-scoring contention with home hero Fernando storming from last on the grid – as a result of an engine change – to ninth at the finish.

Both drivers ran to a three-stop strategy, starting on Softs, onto Mediums during the second stint, before finishing with two sets of Softs for the second half of the race.

Esteban showed solid pace and demonstrated smart racecraft in making up a handful of places throughout the demanding 66-lap race to finish a comfortable seventh at the flag and his fifth top ten result of the season.
