World champion of Formula 1, 1992 Nigel Mansell believes that the decision of Fernando Alonso to combine participation in the Grand Prix and endurance racing season in 2018 – that’s a bad sign for fans of the team McLaren.
According to the legends of British Motorsport, the Spaniard would not have to look for challenges outside of F1, if you would be confident in their prospects.
Fernando Alonso is ready to focus on endurance racing?
“I don’t know what motivates him – said Mansell in an interview with Sky Sports F1. In my opinion, it speaks only about one: the McLaren will not be as competitive car as we all hope, and Fernando decided to find a new challenge to fight for victory. I think the explanation is precisely that. I only hope that the participation in the WEC will not distract him from Formula 1”.
