In the round-up: Fernando Alonso doesn’t see Ferrari or Red Bull putting up a season-long challenge to Mercedes.
What they say
Alonso was asked if he was disappointed by the gap between McLaren and Red Bull:
I think it’s all as predicted right now. Mercedes is the leading force. Red Bull and Ferrari are fighting together for second place in the championship.
And then Renault, Haas and McLaren are in the midfield maybe with hopes of getting closer to the top three teams. Hopefully McLaren is one of those teams that can make this step and jump from the middle to the top teams.

Brilliant to see two Brits battling it out for pole in F2 opener but, much as I'm a Lando fan, they cannot allow that pole lap to count or it makes a complete mockery of any intention to enforce track limits!

Couldn’t agree more. This is a guy I saw blank two Finnish fans with Kimi flags on a quiet evening at the Monaco paddock. And yes, I did write it. https://t.co/K3amwH5wZ8
