Alex in action
18 May 2024
That's Saturday complete โœ…
Alex qualifies in P14 after that lap and won't make it to Q3. A good effort for Albono, though, with yet another Q2 appearance in 2024.
18 May 2024
An improvement ๐Ÿ“ˆ
Alex gets to P12 with a 1:16.200, the exact same time as Russell. He'll need another lap to reach Q3, but there won't be enough time. A strong effort from Albono.
18 May 2024
PIT to ALEX
OK, it's quiet so far. Two Alpines just right up ahead
18 May 2024
Back to it ๐Ÿ‘‰
As the track gets quiet, Alex opts to run in the gap. Will the gamble work?

Albono returns to the garage for the team to check the floor after that trip through the gravel.
