The start of the 2023 Formula 1 World Cup has been practically unbeatable for Spanish pilotsespecially knowing where they came from last year, and the good initial results from Alonso and Sainz have rekindled the flame of passion for motorsports in our country as it had not been for a decade.
It’s known that Red Bull, today, is untouchable, but the Asturian reaffirmed all the expectations that were about his new team and about the AMR23 for this year with a spectacular third place in Sakhir that tastes like victory. Sainz, for his part, was fourth in Bahrain and also promises to fight more than ever with his Ferrari in the World Cup.
As a consequence, just when It will be 10 years since the last victory of a Spaniard in the Spanish Grand Prixin Montmeló (Fernando Alonso with Ferrari in 2013), this renewed passion for the ‘Great Circus’ in Spain has caused tickets for the entire weekend of the Spanish GP 2023 (June 2-4) have sold out in just two hours after going on sale.
The great performance of Alonso and Sainz at the Bahrain Grand Prix has caused the expectation among the Spanish fans will once again approach its peak, those years in which even football stadiums paid more attention to the course of the races than to the action on the pitch, hence the absolute fullness that is expected in Montmeló. Spanish fans of Formula 1 have been eager for years to enjoy competitive drivers and cars, and it seems that both drivers will fight for the top positions.
Even the ‘special bleachers‘ have sold out at a devilish rate this Wednesday. Own Carlos Sainzwhich has its personalized grandstand in Montmeló (Alonso seems to be processing his own), announced that all of them had been sold out in less than two hours, to his own astonishment: “Incredible! Tickets sold out in absolutely record time. See you at the Spanish GP.”
It is clear that Formula 1 moves masses again in Spainand that the national public does not want to miss the opportunity, perhaps the last, of see double world champion Fernando Alonso in action in a competitive car like Aston Martin’s; nor of being able to enjoy, who knows, a Spanish victory in Barcelona again on the back of a Ferrari.
