As Italians call him, 'Nando', has never been an easy driver to deal with; every Ferrari fan still remember the team radio in Monza 2013 after the troubles with the draft strategy with teammate Felipe Massa.
Even at Woking they remember its character well: notorius the accident caused to Lewis Hamilton during the qualifying of the Hungarian Grand Prix of 2007. And what about the rumours of his involvement in the 'Crashgate' of Nelsinho Piquet in Singapore 2008?
A thorny guy, exploited with the last McLaren period and the 'GP2 engine' shouted livestream.
Now it's David Coulthard's turn, at the recent AlphaTauri launch: for 'DC' the doors of the Circus won't disclose one more time in front of Fernando, the Scot claimed to Spanish magazine AS:
I know he wants to come back, but I don't think he has a choice. I don't think Mercedes needs him or wants him. I don't think Ferrari needs or wants him. I don't think Red Bull needs or wants him. Where's he going to go? Back to McLaren? For me, Alonso is one of the most talented drivers ever in Formula One, really talented like Hamilton, Schumacher or Senna. Everything he's driven has been driven in a fast way. But everyone has their moment and maybe it has arrived for him.
