Ferrari, Alpine suffered in Mexican altitude

Ferrari and Alpine struggled to cope with the thinner air throughout the Mexican GP weekend. “Engine wise, we couldn’t change what we wanted to change, but it still doesn’t explain the gap.”. It is believed Sainz’s turbocharger actually sustained damage throughout the weekend, with team boss Mattia Binotto declaring: “I’m not ruling out a penalty for Sainz for changing power units in Brazil”. “We suffered with the power unit, but also with the car. Also struggling with the altitude in Mexico was Alpine, whose Fernando Alonso confirmed that the team worked on cooling “more than anything else”. “We had to make several changes for the car to survive the race,” said the Spaniard.
