Alonso closer to victory than Ferrari says Sainz

Carlos Sainz says fellow Spaniard Fernando Alonso is “closer” to the top step of the podium than him so far in 2023. After Melbourne, Ferrari lost an appeal against Sainz’s penalty for a clash with Aston Martin driver Alonso, 41. “I sent him a message to apologise – it was not a touch I wanted,” Sainz said. Indeed, Alonso has been on the podium three consecutive times so far this season as he and Aston Martin enjoy a clear performance surge. “He is closer to victory than me,” Ferrari driver Sainz admits. “Aston Martin is a little better than us, but we’re not too far away,” he added.
