Fernando Alonso assured, when evaluating his participation in the 500 miles of Indianapolis in which the Asturian finished in twenty-first position, that “when I win it is that they have given it to me and when something goes wrong you already knew.”

“When I win one of these challenges it is that they have given it to me and when something goes wrong or they have vetoed you or it was already known. In the past maybe these things affected me now they amuse me. That someone with two titles of Formula 1 and of the World Endurance that runs the Dakar or the 500 miles, without any kind of objective, just run. When we see that in many people who speak, they will be right, “said Alonso in a talk on Instagram.

In this sense, the Asturian rider denied that there had been any kind of veto by the Honda brand so that he would not race with the Andretti team. “It's silly. Before racing I had other options, one of them was Andretti and the other was McLaren's and in the end I felt that we deserved another chance. From then on everything that was said and said, as now that everything the world knows that it was not possible to win with Chevy, “explained Alonso.

The Spanish driver who will return to Formula 1 next year considers the following year a year of work and transition, waiting for the premier class to be “more evenly matched” in 2022 “The goal is to prepare well, to return to racing. competition, being active every weekend and preparing for 2022 with a more even Formula 1, although that is not known for now, “said Alonso.

“My best memories are with Fisichella”

Alonso, who won the 2005 and 2006 World Championships with Renault, valued his then teammate in the French team, the Italian Giarcarlo Fisichella, as the teammate with whom he has “best memories.”

“My best memories are with Fisichella. We won two world championships, we trained in Kenya in the preseason. There were many activities in those years and Formula 1 itself was a wonderful Formula 1. It was another type of competition, very different from today”, explained Alonso

The Asturian rider also referred to the situation that German Sebastian Vettel , four-time world champion, is experiencing this season. “It is a difficult situation because the car is difficult, there have been other years that they were fighting for the world championship, but when the car is to fight for Q3 and be among the top 10 you have to put the focus on someone. They have had some opportunity. , but few, we must recognize that Mercedes has been above the rest, “concluded Alonso.
