Fernando Alonso does not believe Ferrari will be able to compete with Mercedes and Red Bull Racing in the race for driver and manufacturer titles this season.
Fernando Alonso still does not regret his decision to leave Scuderia Ferrari at the end of the 2014 season.
For the two-time Formula 1 world champion, it is clear that nothing has changed at Maranello over the past seven years. For him, the squadra is still very far from finding the path to success in the premier class of motorsport, even if he expects progress from them this year.
« I think Ferrari will take a step forward this year, thanks to their resources and their past, Alonso analysis with Sky Sports Italia. I don’t think we will fight with them this season. In any case, it would be bad news for them if they found themselves in a fight with Alpine! »
Alonso, however, is keeping his feet on the ground and doesn’t expect to fight for the win this season either.
« I don’t see myself getting on the top step of a Grand Prix podium this year, he admits. The goal is 2022, when Formula 1 will carry out its technical revolution. Next year I think everyone will want to win and fight for the world title. Everyone will be starting from scratch, and I keep my fingers crossed for us! »
