Alpine reports that Alonso still holds onto seventh place at the Austin GP

Racing driver Fernando Alonso and his Alpine team successfully appealed against the 30-second penalty received by the Spaniard after the US Grand Prix in Formula 1. As a result, the two-time world champion lost seventh place. “Our team is happy with the decision to keep it in seventh place and six points for the World Cup,” Albin said.

Alonso was forced to relinquish his seventh position on Sunday after the stewards gave a protest from the competing Haas team over the safety of his car. The Spaniard had a serious collision with Lance Stroll’s Aston Martin during the race, but managed to keep his car on the track and continue. His right mirror was loose. Haas thought it unsafe and argued that Alonso should have driven to the pit lane for the repairs. The hosts agreed to Haas and the time penalty dropped Alonso to 14th place, outside the World Cup points.

Alpine appealed because the team thought Alonso’s car was safe enough. In addition, Haas would have filed the protest too late.
