Failed for sure

F1 Racing (UK) - - INBOX - Alis­tair Downs New York

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!
