Alonso stands out asa tru es tar
What a great end to the Formula 1 season I witnessed on ‘catch-up’.
But for one thing…
When you get to my age jokes about failing memory become a regular thing, but I did find myself wondering if the C4 team of Jones, Webber, Jordan, Wolff and Coulthard, all of whom I like and respect, had lost theirs. Their disdain for Fernando Alonso’s ambitions outside of F1 tempted me to put my ageing foot through the television! Have they forgotten their history, and the great all-rounders like Stirling Moss, Jim Clark, Mario Andretti and Graham
Hill – winner of the triple crown:
F1, Le Mans and Indy?
“He shouldn’t have raced at Indy,” proclaimed Eddie. Yeah, right. He only led the bloody thing! Given his frustrating run at Mclaren, this was for me the story of the year.
I’m so glad that as a lad I got to witness Clark racing and winning in
F1, saloons and sports cars – all on the same day. I am therefore delighted to see Alonso successfully reviving that tradition, and following in the wheeltracks of giants.
A racer is a racer is a racer. Maximum respect therefore to his team boss, Zak Brown, for supporting his driver, a true star in my humble opinion. Enough, I say. I can contain myself no longer. The current front wings on Formula 1 cars have no place in motorsport. Please, please someone shout stop!
