Fernando Alonso admits that there is some frustration creeping in after achieving another P3 result at the Miami Grand Prix.

The Spaniard remains in third place of the World Championship standings following his fourth podium finish of the season so far. Alonso has placed third in every race of the campaign barring Azerbaijan, where he was a not-too-distant fourth.

While Alonso is pleased with his run of success in 2023, the two-time champion has been unable to pose a serious challenge to Red Bull, with Max Verstappen and Sergio Perez ensuring that the Milton Keynes-based squad have won every Grand Prix so far.

Alonso continues to hope that he can eventually challenge for a win himself during the season.

Alonso wants opportunity to win

When asked if there is some frustration creeping in after his latest P3 finish in Miami, Alonso told media, including RacingNews365.com: "It is! It is.

"Obviously, we want to step one step higher on the podium for P2 and eventually one day we have an opportunity to win a race – but at the moment it didn't happen because Red Bull is better than us.

"It's stronger, it's faster and the reliability has been always outstanding for them as well, finishing both cars in every race.

"So, yeah, if one day there is a crack there, if there is an opportunity, we need to make sure we are in that position and we're still not making mistakes at any point in the weekend."
