Alonso reveals 2021 comeback talks with Red Bull

A rule to spice up the show is only likely to widen the performance gap between the faster and quicker cars this weekend. That is the warning of F1 veteran Fernando Alonso, referring to the softer allocation of tyres in Austria this weekend coupled with the existing rule requiring the top-10 drivers to start the race on their Q2 tyres. “If you start with the C5, it will be even more difficult. “They try to invent a rule to benefit the show, but it ends up benefitting the big teams,” Alpine’s Alonso, 39, added. Alonso is happy to put up with the situation in 2021, because he says his comeback was always centred around the all-new rules for 2022. “I wouldn’t have returned at all without the new 2022 rules. I would like to say that I can be champion again, but I don’t know.
