The two-time champion endured a frustrating display at the Brazilian Grand Prix after spending much of his time chasing down William’s Felipe Massa. Alonso complained that he couldn’t achieve full speed throughout the race, and even when he appeared faster in the corners he had no solution to beat the Brazilian on straight. Alonso also said that it looked like the ones behind him were 50km/h quicker than him even with the DRS enabled. He said that the same thing happened in Mexico, and with or without DRS, the problems looks to be the same.
