Aston Martin principal laments dodgy radar after Alonso strategy blunder
Mike Krack, the Principal of Aston Martin, has come to the defense of the team’s strategy call in the Monaco Grand Prix, which resulted in Fernando Alonso missing a potential opportunity to challenge race winner Max Verstappen.
As rain began to fall in the latter part of the race, drivers initially tried to navigate the affected section around Mirabeau on dry tires. However, as the rain spread across the circuit, this option became untenable. Unfortunately for Alonso, who had recently pitted to switch from hard to medium tires, the rain arrived shortly after his pit stop. He had been set to run an alternate strategy compared to leader Verstappen.
