Article of Fernando Alonso in Aston Martin it was without a shadow of a doubt one of the blows, somewhat surprisingly, that revived the recent market of drivers. Close to 42, the two-time world champion has decided to marry the project of the British team where he took the place of Sebastian Vettel in partnership with Lance Stroll.
Aston Martin also believes in the talent of Alonso, who in his career has almost always been able to go beyond the limits of the one seat he drove, to be able to make further progress in performance but at the same time he does. not intending to deceive oneself to be able to fight in a short time for important goals. Here, as indicated by the head of the team Mike Crackit is part of a project that includes Alonso himself who will need the work and support of the team to be able to aspire to high level competition.
“It is something that we should avoid. But even when we hired Fernando, we didn’t use catchy words – announced Krack, interviewed by AS – We never said we would win, we never said we would be world champions. We are trying to move forward, we want to be there in a couple of years, but we have not said we will win because we have Fernando. We have to give him the right tools to win. I would be surprised if people see us as a team that only talks about winning, because we don’t.”
Krack also believes that, despite no longer having a green ID, Alonso’s sporting time is not very close to the flag: “Doesn’t he have many years left in Formula 1? I disagree. We have already seen the same level of motivation with Valentino Rossi. If the motivation is there, with the commitment, physical and mental preparation, his talent and his experience, I don’t think he will have much more time”.
