“We finished sixth, so it was our best race, and from that moment we keep doing track walks and keep scoring points on Sundays.” he added.
“At the moment it’s a pure superstitious thing.” Alonso has scored points in the last three races – Azerbaijan, France and the Styrian GP in Austria — to go 11th in the championship. He finished 17th in Spain and 13th in Monaco. The Spaniard was joined in the news conference by Red Bull’s championship leader Max Verstappen, who has won four of eight races this season and is going for his third win in a row in Austria on Sunday. The Dutch 23-year-old told reporters before last month’s Azerbaijan Grand Prix that he would rather stay in bed than do a track walk. “I haven’t done one since 2017,” he said then. “I have a few more minutes in bed. And if I want to know the track I will drive my out-lap a bit slower, look around.” Verstappen crashed out of that race with a late high-speed blowout while leading.

Relations between Moscow and Kyiv collapsed after the annexation of Crimea in 2014 and the start of a Russian-backed separatist conflict in eastern Ukraine the same year. The unveiling of Ukraine’s team jersey for the European championship sparked outrage in Russia because it featured an outline map of Ukraine that included Crimea as well as the slogan ‘glory to the heroes’. It was later modified. Mazepin, son of a Belarus-born billionaire businessman, explained his reasons: “Ninety-nine of the people that surround me keep telling me it’s coming home,” said the 22-year-old rookie, referring to a popular England supporters’ chant. “I’m just hoping that it’s not coming home. “I’m really hoping that Ukraine wins because although Ukraine and Russia are two very different things right now, I was born in a time where it’s our brotherly nation and I have loads of friends there.” Russia went out of the tournament after finishing last in their group. McLaren’s English driver Lando Norris said his German team boss Andreas Seidl had taken Tuesday’s 2-0 defeat to England at Wembley in the last 16 surprisingly well. “I don’t know if he’s just really hurt inside and he’s struggling,” he said sarcastically. “I’ll be supporting him this weekend. I’ll be by his side, holding his hand if he wants to cry or something. “He seems alright at the moment. I hope England can go all the way and can back up everything because that will make it even better than just beating Germany or something.” (Reporting by Alan Baldwin, editing by Pritha Sarkar)
