Alonso, who was also heard disputing his team’s choice of tyres during the previous round, complained that a similar radio message of his had been broadcast on the world television feed.
“It was again another radio [call] that FOM is broadcasting. That is their favourite hobby so good luck to them. I don’t really understand the meaning.
“What is strange when you are on track and the last sector is super wet, you cannot improve any more probably in the last sector. So you know you have a normal conversation, private conversation with the team if it’s worth doing another lap with extreme or not.
“At the end we attempted to do another lap with extreme. They seemed to have fun on that but it’s annoying sometimes.”
Despite missing the cut for Q3, Alonso said the team qualified higher than it would have done had the track been dry.
“In the first attempt we were P11 which I consider quite lucky already because in dry we were fighting for Q1.
“Already in Q1 we saw the track was getting better and better and some fast cars like [Charles] Leclerc and other guys were out in Q1. We got lucky there, lucky also in Q2.
“P11 is close to the points, here qualifying in the position at the start of the race is quite important and I think we are further up than we hoped.”
