Fernando Alonso and his fans were looking forward to 2022, the year of the plan. A season of big changes in Formula 1 rules, it seemed Alpine can build a great car and the Nano will fight for the podium and victory againBut the dream is over. The single-seater did not run as expected, it was still a far cry from Mercedes, Red Bull and Ferrari, and it involved some ‘hands’ with his teammate Esteban Ocon. The result has been a turning point in Asturian’s career.
Alonso will join Aston Martin at age 41 where will he hold Sebastian Vettel steering wheel, which had announced its withdrawal a few days back. The Spaniard is the oldest driver on the grid and holds several records in this regard. From Beginning 2001 in Minardic It has driven through 8 different cars and participated in many of the most important events in the motor world such as the Dakar Rally, the 24 Hours of Le Mans or the Indianapolis 500.
Asturian has been Two-time world champion (2005 and 2006) and second time runner-up (2010, 2012 and 2013). Now, he will try to fight for victory again, something he has ultimately been unable to do with Alpine, with his best finish third in 2021 at the Qatar GP. Alonso’s adventures in the French team would last two years. Aston Martin will be the future.
