The group struggled for a lot of the weekend to get its tyres to work.
Esteban Ocon began eleventh and took benefit of two retirements forward to salvage two factors for ninth, whereas Fernando Alonso certified solely seventeenth, and moved as much as thirteenth on the flag.
The consequence meant Alpine lose two locations within the constructors’ championship to Aston Martin and AlphaTauri, each of whom scored nicely in Monaco.
“It may very well be worse,” Budkowski informed Motorsport.com. “Sadly, our rivals made the a lot of the race, and particularly those that have been behind us and that have been scoring even larger factors as a result of two of the leaders dropped out.
“So within the championship it is painful. It was a foul weekend for us, actually.
“We struggled from Thursday with tempo and largely tyre temperatures. And though we sort of recovered a bit with Esteban in qualifying, he managed to qualify in an honest place, the automobile wasn’t at that stage arrange for tyres that have been working.
“So general, it is a bit of a weekend to overlook. Nevertheless, there’s a lot of learnings to get from it as nicely.”
Requested why Alonso appeared to endure extra, Budkowski stated: “They have been each struggling, on Thursday and Saturday morning. The distinction was that Esteban managed to modify his tyres on in Q1, run two, and Fernando did not.
“Clearly not qualifying, however made rather a lot worse by the truth that the tyre did not swap on. I firmly that consider that had Fernando managed to modify on the tyres on his automobile as nicely, he would have been aggressive.
“And to be trustworthy, I feel had we managed to get them to work earlier within the weekend, Esteban would have been in Q3.”
Budkowski insisted that Monaco wasn’t related to the larger image.
“I do not consider that it is a weekend that’s related to the development we have proven in Portugal and Barcelona.
“So we have to make it possible for we go away it behind, and we additionally get the training from this weekend to ensure we progress and particularly do not get caught out in Baku once more.
“It is automobile, tyres, circuit and atmospheric circumstances, they’re the 4 variables to the equation. I consider it is a glitch in our development.”
