Ralf Schumacher: Alonso’s Aston Martin returns / Components 1

Six-time Grand Prix winner Ralf Schumacher analyzes Fernando Alonso’s transfer to depart Alpine for Aston Martin: “It is a very good transfer for Aston Martin.”

Components 1 mentioned goodbye to the summer season break with three bangs: first the announcement of Sebastian Vettel’s retirement, then the Hungarian Grand Prix and the nice race of the seize of Max Verstappen and the brand new failure of Ferrari, on August 1 the affirmation that Fernando Alonso will transfer. Alpine to Aston Martin.

a hundred and eightieth GP participant Ralf Schumacher admits in his assessment of the weekend in Hungary: “It was a shock for me. This additionally signifies that Oscar Piastri will drive Alpine subsequent season, in any other case I can’t clarify the change. Alpine didn’t wish to let Piastri go, he’s the way forward for the French. So he needed to discover a place to work now.”

However based on at the moment’s Sky GP professional Ralf Schumacher, there are different causes for Alonso’s coup: “Apparently Alonso wished a contract for not less than two years, not simply one other season. For Aston Martin, signing Alonso, together with his huge expertise and velocity, is a really good transfer. I’m glad for Fernando as a result of he’s doing his finest.

Six-time GP winner Schumacher went into depth and mentioned: “For my nephew Mick, Aston Martin would have been a alternative too. However principally you have got the Haas crew doing an excellent job and making progress this yr. Mick’s efficiency has elevated considerably in the previous few weeks, so I can think about that the star crew will proceed as it’s. I do not know what else Haas can do, as a result of there aren’t many skilled drivers in the marketplace. And also you see that new drivers want a very long time to get began with new vehicles with out a take a look at. “

“For Fernando Alonso, the change is a step backwards. Alpine is at the moment in a greater place than Aston Martin. I can solely think about that Fernando did it solely as a result of Alpine didn’t give him another choice. I see it as a breach of belief. At Aston Martin, the entire crew will likely be behind him. Aston Racing Martin wasn’t that sluggish in Hungary both. When you perceive the automobile, it may be very promising. However on paper, Alonso is worse within the Aston Martin than within the Alpine.
