With Fernando Alonso ‘celebrating’ 10 years without a Formula 1 victory this week, the latest edition of The Race F1 Podcast asks if he’s better than ever.
Alonso has been one of the big talking points of the 2023 season, with four podiums in five weekends and third place in the drivers’ championship. This has also propelled Aston Martin to an unexpected second in the team standings.
Ben Anderson and Glenn Freeman join Edd Straw to sort the myth from the reality when it comes to Alonso and explain why he’s so enduring in F1.
What motivates him? Why did he return to F1? How responsible is he for the fact his results over the past 10 years have been patchy on paper thanks to fighting heroically in losing causes?
We also ask what he might yet achieve with Aston Martin given he’s already talking about racing on to at least 2025.
