Alonso being a right arse & I'm totally off him, keep your mouth shut & do one at season end, nah I'll just mouth off the engine supplier on live on air. Tosser.
Damaged goods & crazy if Williams take him on..
That would be something else if he were to go to Williams and I would love it to be true even, as you say, it's something of a risky move given his reputation. But I wince every time I see Massa and Stroll underperforming every week in that car which can score much better so it's a no brainer for me!
Alonso is such a great great driver that you'd think it would seem a no brainer for Mercedes and Red Bull to sign him up or even Ferrari to take him back. I'm surprised even Renault are not sniffing him out. Given their status as a works team and the clear benefits that the works constructors have in this new hybrid power unit era they could easily find themselves challenging Ferrari and Mercedes in the near future. That would be a great move for him and yet the fact that neither of those teams mentioned seem to want him is (while aware of of his age is probably more indicative of the wider reputation he has cultivated within the sport which is less than positive. Ferrari could have easily taken him back and shunted Kimi out of the way but the way they made it so clear that such an event was never going to happen really indicates just how toxic and brattish Alonso had become in his last couple of seasons there.
Truth be told this has been obvious for the last decade given the way he responded to the challenge from Hamilton in his rookie year 10 years ago. His behaviour that year was something else. Has never really recovered from that mess.
