Fans deliver Alonso penalty verdict

[ad_1]

RacingNews365 readers believe Fernando Alonso’s penalty at the Australian Grand Prix was incorrect.

The Aston Martin driver finished sixth on the road at Albert Park following a cunning strategy where he started on hard tyres before utilizing the virtual safety car – deployed when Lewis Hamilton ground to a halt – to make a cheap pit stop.

But following George Russell’s dramatic late crash at Turn six, Alonso was deemed to have driven in a potentially dangerous manner,

The resultant 20-second penalty dropped Alonso from sixth to eighth but a poll put to readers at RacingNews365 has suggested this verdict from the stewards was incorrect.

In fact, 60.6 per cent of voters believe that the penalty for the two-time world champion was unjust.

Alonso was also handed three penalty points for his actions.
