F1 needs drivers like Alonso, charisma and talent – Brawn

Double-world champion Fernando Alonso has constantly protected his team McLaren’s performance, highlights McLaren improved the results compared to last year and criticizing the media for an unwanted reporting of the team.

But, following the resignation of racing director Eric Boullier, McLaren Racing CEO Zak Brown admitted they are under-performing.

Although, Formula 1 sporting boss Ross Brawn says he hopes Fernando Alonso stays in F1.

Rumours are growing stronger by the race that the Spaniard, who won Le Mans recently and last year raced at Indianapolis, may quit F1 at the end of the season.

Brawn says the way Alonso has handled multiple consecutive weekends of sports cars and F1 is impressive.

“You never know, maybe he’s looking for something out of formula one, but I really hope that’s not the case,” Brawn, representing Liberty Media, is quoted by Marca.

“He is still very fast and F1 needs drivers like him with charisma and talent,” he added.

McLaren cannot be pleased with the growth it has made this year, Brown added.

“We have improved over last year. We have more points this year than we had all of last season.

“So while it is unsatisfactory, at our race pace we are improving. We have more commercial partners, this year than we had last year, so we are improving.

“However we are not in a good enough place and expect to be much better.”
