I believe we’ll see a really quick and extra pleasant to the Alonso crew. This is superb for the game and for him. Apparently, Fernando is actively coaching – that is essential, as a result of he’s not a younger man.
Alonso’s return will profit the crew with which he has gained two titles. Changing Riccardo with him is not going to be simple – Daniel was an excellent driver. I shall be completely satisfied to comply with the performances of the Australian in McLaren, the place his associate shall be Lando Norris. However I am simply as completely satisfied about Fernando’s return. “
