Pedro de la Rosa Praise all the commitments of the two-time F1 world champion, which makes him different
EObviously, Fernando Alonso Entering F1 is a highlight of the 2021 season. In the first race in Bahrain, the Asturian has left his mark on qualifying (he won 9th place). Punishment is a game in which he must retire. But it can be clearly seen that he has not lost the ability to make him two world champions (2005 and 2006) and three runner-ups (2010, 2012 and 2013).The only thing missing is the mountains Development car In this way Alonso can give full play to his talents.
Because it is possible, Pedro Martinez de la Rosa In the “F1 Countries” podcast, it was revealed what was the key to Alonso’s competitiveness at the age of 39. “Fernando’s advantage is that he considers racing 24 hours a day. Everyone says the same thing about champions and professions, but in fact, when it comes to Fernando, you are serious. When he was not participating in F1 or WEC (World Endurance Race), I was with him, and he was thinking “we should participate in karting together”. He has been thinking about what races he can participate in on the weekend,” he emphasized that the former driver is now a commentator.
Then he added: “Alonso is very unique, I have been there with many pilots. As far as I am concerned, I wanted to do other things on the weekend I was on vacation: at home, seeing my children, riding a bicycle… For him, this is not his job, but his passion. He is a passionate person, and I think this is his biggest advantage: he has no other disturbances in his life.He is a 100% loyal man“.
De La Rosa, who worked with Alonso at McLaren and Ferrari, learned that Alonso is not a “rusty” driver. He added that age is not a problem. “It’s great to see him, at his age, coming back, so hungry. I’m a little disappointed. Everyone asks his age. He is almost 40 years old now. Is he fast enough?, But I keep getting the kind of jokes from young riders. ”
He concluded in his analysis of the return of Asturian people to the “Grand Circus”: “It is a bit unfair to say that he has retired from F1 for two years..I mean: he has been WEC Or in Dakar, Always in the kart Always keep in touch with motorsport. It’s not like I don’t participate in this sport. “
