Fernando Alonso will start second and Sainz fourth in the Saudi Arabian GP | Formula 1 | Sports

In a Formula 1 World Cup in which “Red Bull can win all the races”, according to George Russell released after the premiere in Bahrain two weeks ago, any problem with the energetic cars upsets the grid, especially among those who follow more than close to the world champions. If the protagonist of the trigger is Max Verstappen, the effect is double because it concentrates the pressure on Checo Pérez, the Dutch pilot’s luxury squire. A breakdown in the drive shaft of the Mad Max car during the second qualifying sieve will force him to start the 15th this Sunday in Jeddah (6:00 p.m., Dazn), where his teammate won the second pole of his career, after the one he achieved last year on this same stage.

At his side will be Fernando Alonso, who once again made it clear that Aston Martin is ready for the highest levels, and to take advantage of any Red Bull oversight. The Asturian finished with the third fastest time, just behind Charles Leclerc, but the 10-position penalty that the Monegasque from Ferrari drags for resorting to the third electronic engine control unit, will pave the way for the Oviedo native. George Russell will start third and Carlos Sainz will start fourth.
