Fernando Alonso’s annoyance at Alpine’s poor Formula 1 reliability reached a new peak following his Mexican Grand Prix retirement.

Claire Cottingham and Ben Anderson join Edd Straw on The Race F1 Podcast to assess Alonso’s rage and Alpine’s season.
They also consider what Alonso’s still bringing to the team and where it might miss him in 2023, when Esteban Ocon and Pierre Gasly will be Alpine’s line-up and Alonso switches to an Aston Martin team that’s at present distinctly less competitive than the car he’s lambasting this season.
