Fernando Alonso expects 'very, very tight' battle with McLaren by 2022 F1 season's end – Sportskeeda

Fernando Alonso claims that Alpine’s fight with McLaren could stretch to the last race of the season in Abu Dhabi. So far, the two teams have been in a fierce battle to secure P4 in the constructors’ championship.
Speaking to the media, including Sportskeeda, during Thursday’s press conference for the 2022 F1 Japanese GP, Alonso reflected on the McLaren-Alpine battle. He said:
The Enstone-based outfit faced a double DNF during the 2022 F1 Singapore GP. To make matters worse, rivals McLaren managed a double-points finish, outscoring Alpine by four points. Post-race, the French team’s boss told the media, including Sportskeeda, that:
The 2022 F1 Singapore GP was a special race for Fernando Alonso. It was the Spaniard’s 350th start in F1, making him the first driver to reach this milestone. The race, however, was also his second consecutive DNF in a row and his fourth of the season so far.
Fernando Alonso has criticized his car’s unreliability throughout the 2022 F1 season. The two-time world champion pointed out that he has lost many points owing to the mechanical DNFs.
The driver defined his finishing rate this season as “unacceptable” while speaking to Motorsport and explained:
Fernando Alonso also revealed that his denial to take on the new power unit in earlier races was not necessarily the reason behind his latest retirement. The driver, however, did admit that he might take on a newer unit sometime soon.
