Rookie Vandoorne out qualifies veteran Alonso, and unlike
the latter, the former advances into Q3.
To what end would Alonso proceed. Your inability to see beyond your
prejudice puts you in the same order of percipience as News and Edmund
and negates the worth of your opinion.
Exactly. He was due for a 40 (?) place grid drop so why not let Stoffel take
some glory? It's not like Nando has to learn the circuit or anything. Best
to keep whatever durability the PU might have for the race from the back.
So he's a wizard for both going fast (#1 in Q1) AND for not
going fast (#13 in Q2). PLUS, an altruistic, generous Alonso
to boot no less! Yeah, I'm certain that MUST be it alright.
Of course, whatever he did, with a 30 place penalty, wouldn't
have affected SV's race or starting position in any way at all.
It's difficult to make predictions, especially about the future.
