02 Mar 2024
CHECQUERED FLAG ๐Ÿ
That's it for Round 1! Alex crosses the line in P15.
02 Mar 2024
ALEX to PIT ๐Ÿ“ฃ
"Turn 4 braking is very strange!"
02 Mar 2024
Lap 55/57
Three to go! ๐Ÿ’ช P15 for Alex currently.
02 Mar 2024
Last stretch ๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ
Less than ten laps to go. Come on Albono! Lap 48/57
02 Mar 2024
Pace still to come? ๐Ÿ‘€
Alex has the 2nd youngest set of hard tyres in the field. Could this race come to him in the final stages? P15 as it stands. Lap 43/57
02 Mar 2024
Time for one final push ๐Ÿ’ช
Alex pits and puts on a set of hards. He exits in P15 but is caught by RIC on the warmer soft tyres ahead of Turn 4. P16 with 19 to go... Lap 38/57
02 Mar 2024
Team Radio ๐Ÿ“ฃ
"Box box!" Lap 37/57
02 Mar 2024
Strategy Time ๐Ÿ‘€
Alex is going deep into this second stint, thanks to the longer time spent on the softs at the start. He is up to P10 as the field pits around him, and he has clear air to hammer in the lap times! Lap 36/57
02 Mar 2024
Managing temps ๐ŸŒก๏ธ
The air temperature is only 18 degrees celsius, but Alex is driving off-line to keep his temperatures down. Lap 33/57
02 Mar 2024
Another place forward ๐Ÿ‘†
ZHO pits and Albono leapfrogs into P12. He remains in MAG's DRS window. Lap 30/57
02 Mar 2024
Words from the steering wheel ๐ƒ
Alex's steering wheel flashes 'CAR TOO HOT' briefly. He will be managing those temperatures. He is just half a second behind MAG. Lap 27/57
02 Mar 2024
James Vowles to Alex ๐Ÿ“ฃ
"You're doing a good job!" Lap 26/57
02 Mar 2024
Reeling in MAG ๐ŸŽฃ
Alex is within the DRS zone of MAG. His tyres are several laps younger too. Can he get this done? Lap 25/57
02 Mar 2024
One down... ๐Ÿ‘‹
Albono gets past OCO before Turn 4. He's up to P14 as it stands. Lap 18/57
02 Mar 2024
A quick stop and it's back to the action
02 Mar 2024
Back out on the hards ๐Ÿ›ž
Alex does finally box, and rejoins right alongside OCO. He's in P15 but will have much younger tyres come the end of this stint! Lap 17/57
02 Mar 2024
Team Radio ๐Ÿ“ป
"Box box!"
02 Mar 2024
He's staying out!
Albono is going deep into this opening stint on the softs. He is up to P3 as it stands, only Verstappen and Alonso ahead of him. Lap 15/57
02 Mar 2024
Moving up ๐Ÿ‘†
Several cars are into the pits. Albono stays out and is up to P6 for the time being. He is making these tyres work. Lap 13/57
02 Mar 2024
Finding a rhythm ๐Ÿ˜ฎโ€๐Ÿ’จ
The pack is settling into a regular pace now. Albono sits two seconds behind TSU, and two seconds ahead of MAG. P11 as it stands.
02 Mar 2024
Keeping the pressure ๐Ÿ”›
Alex is keeping within a second of TSU in P10. He's got plenty of DRS to help him through the lap. Knocking on the door of the points places...
02 Mar 2024
Great start ๐Ÿ’ช
Alex makes up two places in the opening corners as STR takes a spin and HUL takes damage. Albono is up to P11.
02 Mar 2024
Away we go! ๐ŸŸข
It's lights out and we are racing!
02 Mar 2024
