While Fernando Alonso will make his big comeback in Formula 1 next season, the double world champion justified his choice.
After a two-year absence, Fernando Alonso will return to Formula 1 next season. After experiences in the Dakar, the Le Mans 24 Hours, and the Indianapolis 500, the Spaniard will make his return to F1 in 2021 with the team that had once produced his two Formula 1 world titles, namely Renault, which will become Alpine next season.
Although it will be difficult to aim for a title in a year’s time, Fernando Alonso nevertheless has great ambitions for the future. But according to him, the important point lay beyond that.
“When I left F1, my friends told me: “At last you can do what you want”. But what I want is to race, so I’m going to keep racing.
“I like running too much to stop. I wasn’t ready to say stop in F1 either. I don’t know what’s on the other side of the door, and even if it doesn’t scare me, I’m not ready to find out yet.
“I need a steering wheel in my hands every fortnight”
