Alonso is considering leaving Formula 1
Fernando Alonso said Formula 1 is not challenging as it once was and added that he could switch soon to another series.
The former world champion is going through hard times with McLaren, but that is not main reason behind his opinion. The Spaniard said that the speed of the cars and the limitations of the rules have made the competition less interesting.
“I love all categories of motorsport but Formula 1 is not as exciting anymore. I enjoy my time with McLaren – Honda and I have strong reasons to stick with this fantastic project till the end. But at the same time, I am unhappy with many things in Formula 1, including plans for a 21 race calendar,” said Alonso before concluding:
“But with no testing, with these tyres, with these limitations, with the calendar for example of next year, there is the temptation for other categories, that is true.”
If the day comes when Alonso decides to leave Formula 1, he will undoubtedly be one of the most-wanted drivers wherever he chooses to go.
