Spain’s iconic racing driver is considering a 2021 season back to Formula one after his recent exploits in the Dakar rally.
Whilst talks are ongoing between team bosses and Alonso’s agents for a 2021 drive the driver himself has spoken out how he thinks that nobody is exploiting current world champion Lewis Hamilton’s weaknesses on the track.
Alonso now 39 years old who once had Hamilton as a team mate, although it was a rocky relationship, feels nobody is pinpointing the opportunities to beat him through a race or season to the title.
He feels that whilst the world champion Brit is now a more seasoned driver he still has weak posts that are not being challenged by the younger than ever competitors on the track.
Alonso feels that nobody is pressing Hamilton’s buttons and that excites him for a return to F1 to have one last stab at beating Hamilton if he can get the right drive.
Close sources have revealed that it’s likely to be Hamilton’s last year at Mercedes with him in 2021 replacing Vettal at Ferrari and Fernando taking the hot seat at the Mercedes outfit.
One of the weaknesses of Hamilton, Alonso feels is the drivers slow start to campaigns to which no one takes the benefit and putting him on the back foot.
Alonso wants to see him with the pressure on and feels he can deliver that with his experience.
Alonso’s mass army of fans in Spain await with baited breath.
