The Spaniard could secure three consecutive podiums for the first time since the 2013 season, where he eventually finished runner-up behind Sebastian Vettel. 

If Alonso’s teammate Lance Stroll can score points after his frustrating DNF in Saudi Arabia, Aston Martin might be able to solidify their second place position in the Constructors’ Standings, pulling away from Mercedes.

Currently, the Silverstone and Brackley-based teams are tied on 38 points, trailing behind Red Bull’s strong 87 points haul.
