Alonso hits out at lack of 2021 winter testing

Fernando Alonso has blasted the ever-dwindling amount of testing that is permitted in Formula 1. “Yes, F1 is a contradiction,” said 39-year-old Alonso, who is returning to the sport next year after a two year sabbatical. “Next year, there will be a day and a half of testing in total per driver with the new cars, and from there the world championship is on,” said Alonso. Finally, Alonso was asked if he is returning to F1 in the hope of securing a third world championship, and answered: “I would like to say yes, but I am aware of the limitations, especially in 2021. “I am returning because I love driving and it is a category that comes out more or less unscathed from the pandemic, despite its limitations, with a very powerful brand. “I am returning to an exciting team that has been like my family, so I come back happy, prepared, and with charged batteries to drive the most sophisticated cars in the world every fortnight,” said Alonso.
