Fernando Alonso has been commended for having “no hissy fits or tantrums,” yet he is expected to have greater F1 success.
After his comeback’struggles’ in Formula 1, Alpine director Alan Permane commended Fernando Alonso’s capacity to take responsibility.
Alpine director Alan Permane complimented Fernando Alonso’s capacity to accept responsibility following his Formula One comeback “struggles,” praising the 39-year-hard old’s effort both on and off the track.
After a difficult comeback to F1 after a two-year absence racing in various other motorsport series, Alonso has improved dramatically in recent races, scoring points in each of the last three races, a dramatic improvement from two points in the first five races.
According to The Race, Permane added, “There is no magic bullet to any of this; it’s hard work and he works hard.”
“He put in a lot of effort in the offseason. I think he thought he was better prepared than he was, and then Bahrain, where he had a good qualifying but not a good result but a DNF, was a bit of a false start and there were some issues.
As he continues his cautious but steady return to the championship, Alonso is presently 11th in the F1 standings, ahead of his teammate Esteban Ocon.
Permane claims that his championship experience is crucial to his comeback.
Permane continued, “He’s doing everything right, he’s not taking anything for granted.” “It’s easy to say he’s a little older, a little wiser; I suppose we all are, but that’s how it appears.
“He’s cautious, and he’s simply doing his job, whether it’s behind the wheel or at the computer. He’s there, putting in the hours and putting in the effort.”
With Lewis Hamilton facing one of his toughest tests this year, Alonso recently lauded Red Bull and Max Verstappen for breaking the ‘monotony of Mercedes’ in Formula One.
Mercedes’ domination in the hybrid era can be seen in the stats, with seven back-to-back constructor titles and seven driver crowns, with Hamilton breaking record after record with the reigning world champions.
However, the rankings have shifted this season, with Verstappen leading by 19 points going into Round 9 in Austria, and Red Bull stretching their legs at the top of the Constructors’ Championship by 40 points.
