Ocon denies Alonso’s Alpine reliability claims

Esteban Ocon has hit back at departing Alpine teammate Fernando Alonso’s claim that “only the number 14 car” breaks down in 2022. Frenchman Ocon, who has had a smooth relationship with Alonso at Alpine, disagrees with that narrative. Obviously his broke in Mexico, but we are on the same number of engines,” Ocon added. If there is a disparity between Alonso and Ocon’s reliability problems, team boss Szafnauer insists it’s just bad luck. “We don’t always have the same people preparing Alonso and Ocon’s engines,” he said. “It can’t just be bad luck if you have to change six or seven engines and you still don’t finish races.”.
