  • Fernando Alonso’s frustrations with F1 continue in unheard mid-race rant

Fernando made a great start and was up to 15th position by the end of the first lap.

Stroll was also penalised for forcing Alonso off the track with both drivers handed penalty points. We were more or less passengers on the straights.

"Unfortunately, the five-second penalty I received in the first part of the race dropped me down several positions". "He cut the chicane, drove quickly across the gravel, came back on well in front".

After being told about the five-second penalty by his team, Alonso hit out at the state of F1, and accused them of pushing people around. He made it as high as 12th before the half-way point, before being handed a five-second pit-stop penalty after an incident with another vehicle. This is not the first time the McLaren driver criticized the sport - he has previously called it predictable and boring. "It wasn't a big drama, because we were out of the points anyway, but it's hard to understand the stewards' decision as I had nowhere to go but off the track when Lance [Stroll] came across not having seen me, as he said".

Alonso after the race said his penalty shows how bad Formula One is.

When asked in what way he meant "bad", he replied: "In the decisions, in the randomness, in the pure consistency".

"You are braking on the outside at the last corner", he continued, "and one guy didn't see you and came here to apologise after you go on the gravel, and you get the penalty".

A hefty 8GB of RAM should help the push for high-performance, but the 64GB of onboard storage seems a little trim. We are glad that Razer is calling its piping this, and not a "liquid cooling system" as most other brands do.

This resulted in frequent clashes with the Android community and others but Microsoft is intent on leaving that behind. Microsoft will add almost 60,000 patents to OIN, vastly enlarging its existing pool of 1,300 global patents.


It seems like the Spaniard would much rather leave F1 sooner rather than later.

"[Stroll] didn't see me". "If he sees you and pushes you on the grass it's another thing, but it was just an unfortunate situation in a race situation. It's the way it is".

Alonso has already announced he's quitting Formula One at the end of the season, although he's yet to confirm where he'll drive in 2019. He is keen to take on a new challenge, one which will allow him to compete again for race wins and world championships.

Sunday's Japanese Grand Prix saw that F1 rarity: two drivers getting penalised in the same incident.

The Mercedes driver now holds a 67-point advantage over title rival Sebastian Vettel after the Ferrari driver committed yet another error, which saw him finish in sixth place.

"Each week you have a positive weekend and then you go to another grand prix and you're not sure how you're going to fare, and how you're going to perform".
