Because of trash, Fernando Alonso failed to finish in the F1 Bahrain Grand Prix in 2021

Fernando Alonso (Alpine) 's comeback in the Formula 1 (F1) event was chaotic only because of one piece of trash clogging his race car.

Fernando Alonso was forced to fail to finish (DNF) and was only able to complete 32 laps during his inaugural race at the Bahrain Grand Prix on Sunday (29/03/21) yesterday.

Launching from the ESPN F1 page, Alonso's failed finish was due to garbage in the form of sandwich wrappers (sandwiches) clogging the rear brakes of the racing car he was driving.

Knowing that his car was having problems with his team detecting the temperature of the car's brakes rising rapidly, the veteran racer was forced to return to the garage when the race had just hit 32 laps.

"After the first stop, we experienced a small problem that forced us to reduce the performance of the car. Then at the second stop, there was sandwich wrapping trash stuck in the rear brakes of Fernando Alonsi's car," said Marcin Budkowski as the Alpine team bomb.

“This garbage causes high temperatures and a number of damage to the braking system, so we had to stop it for safety reasons. This is the first race that is detrimental to Alonso, considering he was quite good looking, "he added.

Even though Fernando Alonso himself appeared quite nicely at the Bahrain Grand Prix F1. Starting from the P9 position, the seasoned racer is able to present fierce battles with other racers.

He was seen competing with two former Ferrari drivers, Kimi Raikkonen (Alfa Romeo) and Sebastian Vettel (Aston Martin) which happened quite tense.

But unfortunately, Alonso's struggle had to be stopped because of the problem of sandwich wrappers that clogged the rear brakes of his car.

Alpine F1's fate was also exacerbated by teammate Fernando Alonso, Esteban Ocon was only able to finish in 13th place after a collision with Sebastian Vettel.

Wow! McLaren Injected Rp. 3.46 Trillion by US Investors

McLaren has just sold its shares towards the end of 2020. The British Formula 1 team will receive around IDR 3.46 trillion in funding.
As reported by the BBC, McLaren released its shares to a group of investors from the United States, MSP Sports Capital. The number of shares released was 15 percent at the start, and will jump to 33 percent by the end of 2022.

The amount of money injected during the two years amounted to 185 million pounds, or around Rp. 3.46 trillion. That money can help McLaren's progress in Formula 1 and IndyCar.

McLaren is known to have experienced a financial crisis in recent years, which was exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. This had an impact on their achievements on the F1 track for the past few years.

In fact, McLaren was once known as a tough team in F1, which achieved success through names such as James Hunt, Alain Prost, Ayrton Senna, Mika Hakkinen, and Lewis Hamilton. However, since 2008, the title of champion has never stopped in their garage again.

With the presence of an experienced MSP in Major League Baseball (MLB) and the NBA, it is hoped that the Woking-based team can return to the title race, which Mercedes has controlled for the past seven years.

"This new investment will support our plans to return McLaren to the title race in Formula 1 and IndyCar, and will reinforce our positive momentum, as we continue to focus on our mission to return to the top of the podium," he continued.

This season, McLaren is strengthened by Carlos Sainz Jr. and Lando Norris. Next year, Sainz who chose to move to Ferrari will be replaced by Daniel Ricciardo.
