Is Fernando Alonso the driver Renault needs?

109 693 Näkymät

Fernando Alonso is returning to Formula 1! Is this a good thing, though? Or were there better candidates for the role? Why did Renault look over their academy and instead for a driver that is so polarizing? Today, we (kinda) find the answer...

  • i also hate this idea of developing drivers in F1.. it's supposed to be the best of the best. not potentially the best.

  • i don't even need to watch the video to know it's a yes. there's a reason basically every F1 driver think he's the best there has ever been. This is the guy that beat Michael in his prime.

  • The best option would have been Hamilton or max but renault are shit so neither of them would signe a contract😅😅

  • Alonso is outstanding when it comes to his adaptability but his feedback is meant to be next to none existent. They've either got confidence that Ocon can give good feedback or they'll be heading back down the grid.

  • From Renault's point of view I would arguably say yes. As long as they don't have an engine that fails him then he could help them get to where they want go.

  • wtf did you even read that? Grosjean said "F1 drivers like Hamilton earning $40m a year "unacceptable"" As in he said its not fair cause some "drivers earn Euro 150,000 a year" grosjean said in a gpda meeting, he's worth $20m and makes roughly $2.5m a year but seriously, we all know why Fernando joined tho, Renault needed them eyebrows..............cause they sure as shit aren't looking for engine power or from a better chassis

  • It’s cute to have the younger drivers, but we’ve seen when the experienced exited the teams, within a year or two the performance of the car drops. Since Daniel left, it initially seemed RB would be okay coz they had Max.. but this year I mean.. Williams has Junior drivers this year, last year they had Kubica, and this year’s car is a bit more competitive. I’m sorry to say, but Ferrari has now signed 2 junior ish drivers .. how much of a leap will they have.. I’m not saving an experienced driver is everything - but it helps coz they have the knowledge and maybe know how to give better feedback so the technical guys can develop the car. The younger guys have pace for sure but what do they benchmark some of the handling issues of the car and etc.

  • Alonso is irrelevant and past it as well as the fact he’s a selfish, lying, backstabbing wanker. He went to McLaren in 2007 and he blackmailed the team and put the livelihoods of over 1000 people at risk coz he couldn’t face a fight with Lewis. He went to Renault in 2008, cheated and ruined poor Nelson Piquet Jr’s career to then deny any involvement to cover his ass. He went to Ferrari and although it started off well he later said to Ferrari hierarchy in 2014 that “If I were in a Mercedes, I would be winning” so Ferrari replaced him with Seb. He went to McLaren in 2015 and publicly came out and criticised Honda over Team radio at the Japanese GP. It’s funny how when he leaves teams, they start to win again. Left McLaren in 2007 - McLaren won a title in 2008. He left Ferrari in 2014 - Ferrari won 3 races with Seb in 2015. He leaves McLaren in 2018 - they finish the best team after “the big 3” in 2019 and get two podiums in 3 races. Fernando is the problem and this move shows that Renault hav no faith in their own youth and they deserve everything that happens The combination of an entitled, no filter asshole of Alonso and an emotional Cyril is a disaster waiting to happen

  • It is a good thing, not for renault but for the new F1, they want a story or a show and not just racing , is why they help get him back to the sport(great movie idea). I dont believe renault will win a race anytime soon even with alonso, no body wants their engines and cyril is a bit of a knob, i cant see this ending well for the team but what a great story to tell years to come.

  • I actually thought they were gonna terminate honeybadgers' contract during this season allready, give lundgaard a shot and see who is better.would it be Ocon or Christian? However, whose carreer would you rather see destroyed? I mean, its practically written in stone that whoever is put next to Alonso next year is gonna be finished. As far as I can remember only one teamate survived it and he turned out to be a 'soon' seven times worldchampion.
