Alonso has ‘given up’ on constant F1 rule changes

Fernando Alonso has revealed he has “given up” trying to follow the complex and ever-changing F1 rules.

He is apparently referring to yellow flag rule changes, the on again, off-again radio clampdown, rules for moving in the braking zone, and ‘track limits’, all of which have been hotly debated in the Hockenheim paddock.

Asked if he will be contributing to those debates, the Spaniard was quoted by Spanish reporters as answering: “No, I’ve already given up.

“In each race things change, so now I just say ‘tell me what to do’ and I do it, that’s it.”

‘Track limits’, for instance, is a constantly controversial topic with only some corners strictly policed in different ways around the calendar.

Alonso said: “Today it’s this, tomorrow it could be another so I will ask the team what I have to do each time.

“In every race things change: we’re now going back to the (radio) rules of a year ago because they tried to make it super-spectacular but nothing changed or it was even worse.

“When it’s time for qualifying I will ask what I have to do so I don’t waste my time,” he added.
