Alonso: “It will not be a significant change”


McLaren’s Fernando Alonso told media on Thursday that he doesn’t think the sport’s new start tweaks will change much from a driving perspective.

Speaking ahead of Sunday’s Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps, Stavelot, where the much-anticipated amendments come into force; the Spaniard said: “It will not be a significant change. I know that there is some talk about this but maybe for next year or the following years will be more different.

What we will have here is just some restrictions in communications with the drivers and the team etc. but I think… at least in our team we were not doing any specific communication or strategy during the formation laps etc. so it will not change much.”

Meanwhile, current championship leader Lewis Hamilton slammed speculation suggesting he has embraced a new way of life, having appeared out and about recurrently on social media during Formula One’s summer break.

“I don’t really have a new way of life. This is what I’ve sort of been doing… it’s just more visible to you [online], that’s about it. It’s been working quite well the last couple of years,” the 30 year old retorted.
