But Alonso couldn’t keep his eyes off the camera which was showing Verstappen’s lap and when asked to reflect on his own 13th-placed finish, Alonso said while distracted: “It was good, man, it was good. I’m happy with the lap. The car felt good…”
Alonso then took a step back from the mic as he saw Verstappen crash into the wall with audible gasps around him.
The Alpine driver looked shocked as he attempted to recompose himself before returning to say: “Ok, back to reality.”
“He was pushing. Hey, the race is tomorrow.”
