change coming for alonso and f1 racing

Fernando Alonso is clearly a very patient man. Even at the ripe age of 38 he’s prepared to play the long game, waiting for the right opportunity to make his return to Formula 1 and claim the third world championship title his talent (but not always his circumstance) merits. Alonso believes 2021 will present that chance, when sweeping new rules designed to transform F1 into a more egalitarian competition will come into force. Alonso has stayed sharp by using his sabbatical to race in sportscars, IndyCar and most recently the Dakar Rally. But he is a man who craves success at the highest level. That’s why he yearns for a return to grand prix racing. And, as Fernando explains eloquently in our lengthy, no-holds-barred interview (page 42), he believes he is still…

LECLERC AND VERSTAPPEN LOCKED IN 01 Two of Formula 1’s three top teams have tied up their hottest talents on unusually long contracts that will take them well into the next rules cycle. Charles Leclerc has aligned himself with Ferrari for the foreseeable future, agreeing a remarkably long-term deal which will keep him at the Scuderia until the end of 2024. The contract extension underlines Ferrari’s faith in him after a season in which he clashed messily with team-mate Sebastian Vettel on-track, and it indicates that Leclerc is considered a future team leader once Vettel departs. It’s a clear warning to rivals to keep their hands off. Max Verstappen’s circumstances are slightly different in that he is indubitably Red Bull’s number one driver but, up to now, he has been ostentatiously keeping his…
