Former F1 World Champion Nico Rosberg believes that age is also a factor in Fernando Alonso’s failure to do what he expected when he returned to F1.
After a two-year blank, two-time F1 World Champion Fernando Alonso has returned to the 2021 F1 World Championship with Alpine F1. However, Alonso’s return is more difficult than he and his fans expected.
Former F1 driver Nico Rosberg cites Fernando Alonso’s age of 39 as one reason.
“Alpine is a difficult machine to drive, and Alonso doesn’t enjoy it,” said Nico Rosberg. Sky SportsTold to.
Former Mercedes F1 driver Nico Rosberg believes there are similarities between Fernando Alonso’s situation at Alpine and the difficulties Michael Schumacher experienced in Mercedes after returning to F1. Michael Schumacher has returned to F1 at Mercedes at the age of 41 after a four-season blank.
“It’s a long way to go for Fernando. I think of my Mercedes teammate Michael Schumacher. It was very difficult because of his age.”
“The same thing is happening to Alonso. He was two years away, so it will take some time before he gets into full swing again.”
