Fernando Alonso’s estimate that misfortune has cost him 50-70 points already in the 2022 Formula 1 season might be a slight exaggeration.

But there’s still little doubt that Alonso could be doing better if he was in more competitive – and reliable – machinery than the 2022 Alpine has turned out to be most of the time.

It’s a familiar story for his career too, with a driver who most agree has operated at a remarkably high level for two full decades having not won a title for 16 years and not won a race since 2013.

So Alpine is far from the first team that hasn’t made the best use of Alonso’s ability.

Our new video takes a look at why Alpine’s not delivered as Alonso would’ve hoped, where his points have been lost, and how Ferrari and McLaren wasted Alonso’s potential too.
