Spanish driver Fernando Alonso had a day to forget yesterday in Sao Paulo after an early crash with teammate Esteban Ocon left him damaged and way behind the field for therest of the sprint day.

The rivalry between the drivers is well know and documented and yesterday was another chapter of it leaving Fernando Alonso fuming against frenchman Esteban Ocon.

After the Sprint both drivers were called to the stewards and we could see while waiting in the written media pen how the drivers walked towards the room without making any contact with each other. Minutes later Alonso left the room clearly upset and paid no attention to all the drivers cheering him up on the way.

We would learn the reason of his anger and expression minutes later when the FIA issued a statement regarding both drivers incident during the sprint.

The statement read that after heari ng from the two drivers Ocon was not found guilty of any wrong doing and was driving at similar speeds of other cars at the same point and that Fernando Alonso was significantly faster, as he addmitted, due to the tow. slightly misjedged the time to pull out and crashed Ocon from behind.

Alonso was found guilty of causing a collision at a speed and sector that could be dangerous for the parties involved and was therefore granted a 5 second penalty to be imposed after the sprint race and two penalty points for his licence.

In terms of result the penaly does not change Alonso´s life signigicantly for today in Interlagos where his going to face a very difficult Brazilian Gp.

The relationship between the drivers is not the best and Alonso is counting the days to end his predicament wth Alpine once and for all next weekend in Abu Dhabi.
