Fernando Alonso’s Triple Crown Dream

By The Way - Weekly Columns


To me, Alonso has made the best of a bad situation at times since the now failed McLaren Honda marriage of the past three seasons with some stellar performances along with driving the wheels of the past three cars, too.

Obviously, McLaren fans will be hoping for a marked improvement in the upcoming season. Various members of the management team, including Zak Brown have said they would like to win a race in 2018.

In my eyes, that may be a little too ambitious. I think to get a handful of podiums and several double points finishes over the course of the season will keep the fans happy. It’s never going to be an overnight turnaround. As a fan of the team since 1997, I’d be happy with anything other than a repeat of the latest Honda ‘era’. The future with Renault looks bright, the future looks papaya?
