Aston Martin Team Principal Mike Krack has heaped praise on his
squad following its strong showing last time out in Brazil.
Fernando Alonso ended the Sao Paulo Grand Prix in third place after
an intense late-race battle with Red Bull’s Sergio Perez. It marked
the Spaniard’s eighth podium of the season but it was arguably his
most surprising as Aston Martin’s strong showing came following a
run of difficult races in which it slipped back in the pecking
order. Aston Martin commenced the season strongly with Alonso
scoring six podiums in the opening eight races. It picked up
another top-three finish at the Dutch Grand Prix following the
summer break but then was overtaken by some of its rivals and
pushed down the grid. Krack impressed by Aston Martin Krack has
hailed Aston Martin for rallying together in the difficult period
to bounce back with a strong showing in Sao Paulo. “It shows and
you see it, what a strong team we are,” he told media including “We have kept together in difficult times. After
Zandvoort, we had a couple of races that were not strong. “We had
the tripleheader, which is brutal in terms of workload, in terms of
being away, time zones, heat and a lot of work with not so many
results. “To come back like we did, I think it’s great credit to
everybody involved. “The team at the track, the team at the factory
and campus the lights didn’t go off, if you can believe me, at
times. “It shows that if you’re a strong team and if you trust each
other and believe in each other, that you can do amazing things and
manage amazing turnarounds. “[In Mexico] we were on the other side
of the grid, you see how sometimes these things can go. “But I
think after Mexico, the reaction that we have shown as a team shows
that we are really gearing up for more.”
