Failed for sure
I have to take serious issue with your cover headline on October’s edition... It’s a travesty that a driver of Alonso’s ability can’t find a competitive drive but I don’t believe the blame lies entirely at F1’s door.
Having, for various reasons, made himself undesirable to Ferrari, Mercedes and Red Bull, he didn’t exactly have to go and pitch up at a Sauber or a Haas... he went to a team with huge resource, history and backing of a manufacturer in Mclaren. They delivered sub-par
machinery, laid the blame at the door of Honda, and did nothing with customer Renault engines. Alonso has been failed for sure. But don’t lay the blame at F1’s door!
