#TEAMEMCJET Partner, Fernando Alonso, took home his third podium of the 2023 season in a thrilling and wild finish in Melbourne, at the Australian GP. His third podium comes off the heels of back-to-back podiums to start the season, making it three in the first three races of 2023. In what Alonso called a "roller coaster of emotions" he had this to add:
“But the race itself, it was good for us in terms of pace. I think Mercedes was very fast, and Lewis did an incredible job today… I tried to force a mistake from Lewis all race long, [I] tried to get close, but he drove fantastically well, as the champion he is, and no mistakes.
Following three consecutive third place finishes to start his time with Aston Martin, Alonso was asked what the goal was for him and his team going forward, to which he replied: “I guess a little higher up in the podium, because three third places... let’s go for a second place at least!”
Alonso looks to continue his dominating performance in a couple weeks in Azerbaijan.
