  • Is there hype? Im mostly rolling my eyes and wondering why he never tried to secure a full time indycar ride and gain experience. This is gonna be worse than schumacher. At least schumi joined a team that won the WDC and WCC the year before.

  • No. He will be very frustrated at the end of the season, the whole season complaining and swearing to other drivers 'who ruined his race'. He's had his time and only came back for cashing millions of dollars.

  • Let me sum it up for all of you, IF for two years in a row, after F1, successfully wins the Lemans 24 hour race in 2018 an 2019, just like that, then dabbles in the Indianapolis 500 in 2020, finishes in P21 due to clutch problems, is there any doubt that he can still race, at his age?! Gentlemen, let his resume for the past three years in motorsports show as evident to the fact, that the man can get in any race car of any type and be very successful, at a moments notice. F1, 24 Lemans, Indianapolis 500, back to F1. Please, this man is not human, but a driving machine! Look out, Bottas, Sainz, Ricccardo, and Perez, by the time you see Alonso in your rear view mirror, its over for you!

  • the amount of people willing to just gloss over the fact he guy was an absolute disaster in his last 2 years in F1 is astonishing. Time will not have helped him. this will be more embarrassing than Mansell coming back with Ferrari.

  • To be brutally honest, the only reason Renault would promote Zhou is for the Chinese market behind him. I like the guy and I think hes an OK driver, but at least up until now, he has not proven himself worthy of an F1 seat yet.

  • Let’s see. I’m new to F1 so I’m looking forward to learn what kind of person/driver Fernando is. Watching a bit of Drive to Survive, I understand he is quite sour at teams that are not delivering it for him. But now he is going into a team that know him very well and have achieved so much together back in the early 2000s. So I believe they can work together harmoniously to deliver a good Alpine package, without Fernando needing to steer them in his desired direction. With a decent Ocon alongside him, I mean people were sad he was going to take 2019 out, Alpine will surely make the midfield battle spicy again, like in 2020.

  • Age matters much less than motivation. Most drivers who slow as they get older lose motivation much more than ability. I think Alonso is still motivated after his sabbatical. He will easily out race Ocon even if Ocon is close to him in qualifying.

  • Alonso will do great on the track. It will be nice to watch him again but he is a bad choice for Renault. When Riccardo left they had to accept that they would be set back for a year or two but obviously didn't. I am not an Ocon fan but he is the future of that team not Alonso and choosing Alonso who along with all of his talents is toxic for a young teammate who needs confidence and a good mentor is a short sighted decision. Why do I say he will be toxic? He is too selfish and yes I know all drivers are to a degree but Alonso didn't come back to help a team or to help a young driver be the next great one he came back for a shot at a title. He isn't patient and Renault has said he will need to be. I say the first time ocon does better or half way through the season all of the cracks will show and the old Alonso will show himself

  • I dont understand what all this cutting back on testing nonsense is about. anything like this always feels to me like here you have the pinnacle of Motorsport, and now were going to not allow drivers and teams to test the cars properly. its absolute bullshit just the same as penalties for changing engines and gearboxes. they used to use 2 or 3 engines each qualifying session on its own. thats proper F1

  • Look at at all these comments! Is there any other driver who brings so much interest? No way man. Just the simple fact that many people still butcher him and keep going back to 2007 and bringing Hammy into the debate shows that, for some obscure reasons, they still had not overcome the fact that he is still regarded (no by youtubers but drivers, proffessionals and pundits alike) as probably the best around. It’s not only whether you can drive a car or not but the mentality. Someone mentions here that the period he had to endure at Macca would have destroyed any other; yet he did fight to the very end and finished one point short of the WWC. We haven’t seen yet how other world champions would have put up with that sort of pressure. The antagonism and ill feeling, every single day at the office. Remember Ron Dennis after China, (we were not racing Kimi), in spite that his driver was second on the podium and had saved the day to his own team. As for these comments of “toxic” and the likes I would dare to say that 90% are not F1 followers. They are simply people that browse around and read some comments negative to Nando and they just follow suit. Just like they do to CR7 or Mou. Once they are faced to explain why they find no words. It’s going to be great to see Nando back walking in the paddock, even if he is not winning. Who knows, he was on his day the youngest WWC and maybe he would the oldest. If I'm not mistaken Juan Manuel Fangio kept racing until he was 46 years old. He was also away for two years.. Regards.

  • Enzo Coloni told me: "it's very easy to unscrew and screw again a screw to change the car performances and you'll never understand why it was so slow or so fast"; so it's ingenue to compare the quick laps of Alonso, @post Abu Dhabi GP test, with the laps of other drivers, 'cause Renault F1 heads needed to show to the world, to their sponsors, to Luca Di Meo, that Alonso was a very good chose, to justify his cost & to hide the issues that made Ricciardo to go

    Sauro BaiettaSauro Baietta2 månader sedan
  • Whilst Alonso has been out of F1 for two years, he has been driving competitively unlike poor Ocon who was out of all competitions for a year. My biggest fear is NOT that he will be unable to return to his abilities but that the Alpine will be no better than the McLaren-Honda that caused him to walk. As long as the car works and the team are 100% behind him, he could well finish in the top five or six driver this year.

  • Honestly, I'm not too happy about his return, I was more excited to see him race outside of Formula One and try out various motorsports as he did since 2017-2020. I wanted to see him continue off that and to me, I felt that is more exciting than seeing him return to Formula 1. My expectations for him are non-existent, I know he'll drive well, but as Peter Fighter said, "Will Alpine live up to Alonso's expectations?" It's kinda like Fallout fans expecting another Fallout: New Vegas and then it ends up as something more akin to Fallout 4, it's decent, but not excellent.

  • Alonso's overrated. He only took the title fight to the last race in 2010 and 2012 because Vettel had so many reliability issues and team orders. He also lost in the best car in 2007, a car that finished 60+s ahead of the nearest Ferrari in Monaco, and you're just going to gloss over that abysmal season and Vettel's bad luck and say he always drives the wheels off his car? Or what about him completely stuffing up his Indycar attempt and failing to qualify when his teammate did? Don't you think that's relevant to whether Alonso is fit? And Abu Dhabi, Alonso ran after there was a race. It's not like 40+laps does anything to track evolution. He also had a setup purely for setting laptimes unlike Riccardo and Ocon who had to compromise for the race. Come on Aldas, these one-sided arguments need to end.

Alonso hasnt been out of F1 that long (2 years - only 1 year longer), and has been doing WEC and Indycar open wheel racing. He has not just been riding simulators.... I think Ocon may have him for 1-3 races..but then it's bye bye

  • As stated a lot of people compared Alonso’s return with Schumacher’s which I think is a mistake. When Schumacher retired he was mentally retiring as well as physically. Alonso has never mentally retired and was always looking to return to F1. That is a huge difference and I believe he will be on the pace very quickly.
