A Spanish motor racing figure believes Fernando Alonso needs to adjust his attitude if he wants to be successful in formula one once again.

It might be argued that Alonso has made three key mistakes in his career: leaving McLaren in 2007, leaving Ferrari in 2014, and joining the ill-fated McLaren-Honda project.

“He became world champion twice, but with the talent he has and that no one doubts, he could have won eight titles,” Jaime Alguersuari, father of the former Toro Rosso driver, told the Barcelona newspaper Diario Ara.

“For sure, at some point he thought ‘I am formula one’.

“Fernando always did everything his way, and when he was wrong, others were always to blame rather than finding the reasons for the mistake within himself,” Alguersuari, the former promoter of the Renault World Series, added.

“The question is: Is he going to change? I’m not sure he knows how to,” he said.

    Dude, 109 vs 109 is the same PH. Pathetic response drom a child

  • cameron coulson

    Chester, it was 109 vs 109. Denis was the problem. Many broken promises for FA and playing the fiddle with both drivers, don’t work. Remember, LH had massive test miles in car, very familiar, team backing the English pilot, recipe for problems

    Ron Dennis should have backed Alonso in 2007. Alonso and Dennis got too personal with each other. Dennis as team principle should have taken the long view- and supported Alonso instead of antagonizing him. Very dew dispute that Hamilton performed better than Alonso at times during that season.
    Even with Dennis actively fighting Alonso, Alonso was within 1-2 points of Hamilton at the end of the season.

    Mercheater Benz customer teams nowhere 2017, how about DRS operated whenever the driver wants could be an equaller.

    Ha! not only Alonso but his fans blame everything and everyone but him! (come on… Petrov?) Thats a good thing because they are on the same frequency of thoughts… hehe… I think the change to Renault was made because of Alonso, so I am hoping they will have a better season in 2018…

    If only McLaren had backed their two times WDC Fernando in 2007 to bring home the bacon its a cert he would have. The Ferrari years were hampered by poor wind tunnel correlation and Red Bull’s against the spirit of the rules “air blowing” thanks Petrov! McLaren Honda on paper had all the promise but butt buttt! Next year Nando will give his damn all but as any customer team all you can hope is to pick up the manufacturers scraps. Ron Dennis knows only to well when he left Mercedes engines when MB bought their own works team that they alone owned “the source code”. Red Bull like young apprentices on relative salary’s, Merc’s Ross Brawn persuaded Hamilton at a critical time. So Fernando has endured eight years or so locked out of winning cars but he isnt finished yet!
