There is a lot of curiosity about the Alpine of 2023. Not only because the car has improved a lot over the course of this year and has the ambition to even reach the level of Mercedes in a few months, but also because the French team will make up an entirely transalpine couple after having seen the start Fernando Alonso towards Aston Martin. A welcome departure without too much regret: of course, the two-time world champion is still able to find great performances, but according to Otmar Szafnauer his parable is descending.
The American seems to want to look more at the identity card (41 years old) than at Alonso’s results: “There comes a time when something physiologically happens to a rider, and you don’t have the same skills as when you were younger. I think the same thing happened to Michael Schumacher: at 42 he was not the same driver as ten seasons ago. It happens to all sportsmen, and this is also true for Formula 1 drivers. Our approach was to keep it if it provided high-level performance, but it was necessary to renew one year at a time. Instead, I think Fernando wanted a longer-term contract“Said the American according to what he reported The-Race. Szafnauer then “warned” his former boss Lawrence Stroll: “Fernando is still able to compete at a very high level, he is fast: if this situation continues for another three years, it will be good for Aston and Fernando. But I don’t know how long it will lastto“.
