Creo que ya era hora de que se hiciera oficial la salida de Fernando Alonso del equipo McLaren, esto se lleva especulando mucho tiempo. La verdad a mi me parece una sabia de ambos lado, Ron no tiene que soportar los berriches de Alonso y Alonso no tiene que soportar no poder ser el piloto número uno de McLaren.
Lo dicho por Ron:
He is a great driver but for some reason the combination of Vodafone McLaren Mercedes and Fernando has not really worked out, and in the end we reached a stage where none of us could find a way to move forward.
En pocas palabras ya no ven como salir del problema de tener a sus pilotos compitiendo.
Lo dicho por Alonso:
Since I was a boy I had always wanted to drive for McLaren, but sometimes in life things do not work out.
I continue to believe that McLaren is a great team. Yes, we have had our ups and downs during the season, which has made it extra-challenging for all of us, and it is not a secret that I never really felt at home.
I know there have been suggestions of favouritism within the team and people say a lot of things in the heat of battle, but in the end I was always provided with an equal opportunity to win. Today’s decision allows all of us to focus on 2008, and I wish the team, Vodafone, Banco Santander, Mutua Madrilena and all the other team partners who I have worked closely with during the year, the best for the future.
Pues no mucho, creo que se puede ver que Alonso sufrió en McLaren y no puede esconder su rivalidad con Hamilton.
PD Por fin les gané una noticia al blog de Briatore.
