ALONSO, A LOST ICON

ALONSO A LOST ICON

Fernando Alonso is the typical example of a driver who lost his chances because his choices were not thought through. In addition, he did not really take much of his time to better manage his F1 career.

For a long time, his decisions have been difficult to understand as well as his way of reasoning, especially these recent years. Truth be told, since he was humiliated by Hamilton in 2007, Fernando Alonso fell into chronic depression. We’ve caught a sight of two different personalities, Alonso before 2007 and one after 2007.

The driver has quite the impulsive character, he indeed had a lot of trouble managing his relationships in the field of F1, his behavior is even very similar to that of a sociopath, and it is a sad reality.

His career in 2005 and 2006 witnessed a fairly successful start, He was world champion twice. But by the time the young British driver, Lewis Hamilton, joined the race in 2007; Alonso was destabilized and became aggressive. Not within races but rather in his behavioral patterns, to the point of being assigned the nickname ‘king of pride and selfishness’.

FERRARI IN 2010 – ALONSO, A LOST ICON

He had his chance at Ferrari in 2010 but lost it before Sébastien Vettel and his Red Bull. Then came years of consecutive failures with Ferrari from 2010 to 2014. The end with the scuderia went wrong, same as with Mclaren in 2007 and Renault in 2008 (referring to the scandal of the Singapore GP 2008). Since his arrival at Mclaren in 2015, he has strongly criticized the Honda engine, which is not proper for a big sportsman belonging to the motorsport universe. Not to mention his words ” GP2 engine ” that the Japanese have not forgotten.

When he ended his work with Mclaren in 2018, he realized that things were not going well. He therefore went on to conquer titles everywhere in other categories of motorsport in order to quench his thirst for success, thing he was previously missing. He needed recognition more than anything, especially after noticing that the 2 pilots that came after him, Vettel and Hamilton, are winning all the trophies of the last decade. This was difficult for him to accept.

ALONSO AND FLAVIO BRIATORE – FERNANDO ALONSO, A LOST ICON

Alonso had an exceptional talent but unfortunately a very proud character which greatly harmed his success. If he had the humility and the sympathy of Ricciardo in addition to his talent, he would have necessarily achieved more than anyone since he is a real warrior at heart. Sometimes it is not enough to be fast or talented but rather to know how to manage the art of living together and to focus on the bright side of things. Finally, each person has their own character, and no one deserves to be compared.

The only person who knows Alonso very well at all levels and who could manage his behavior was his former Renault team leader; Flavio Briatore. He understood Alonso’s weaknesses and his strengths. He knew how to channel his talent. He was the one who spotted him and brought him straight to Renault. But after Alonso’s departure from Mclaren in 2007, everything went wrong. The pilot needed a mentor for the management of his career, despite having worked again in 2008 with Flavio Briatore, he was no longer stable at all, and unfortunately quite a stubborn person. He ended up losing his chapter in the history of great drivers like Senna or Prost.

MICHAEL SCHUMACHER

He was asked the question about his best time in f1 several times. And he always answers his collab with Schumacher.

Up until today Alonso keeps trying find his way back to glory, but at this point, no Formula 1 team will want him. He represents for the majority a source of problems, since nobody is able to handle him. Despite his speed, he will not be able to keep up with this generation of young drivers overflowing with talent.

It is difficult for a driver like him to step back, it will much take effort to cool down and leave.

It’s a story of a champion betrayed by his choices and his character.
