Mercedes boss Toto Wolff has responded to calls from Nico Rosberg, who called on the former team to bring Fernando Alonso into his ranks. Wolff points out that Alons has been locked because of his actions in the history of the Mercedes, while allowing the Austrian to have Sebastian Vettel at the wheel of a silver car in the future.
While there have been increasing rumors lately about Fernando Alonso's return to Formula One, Wolff has denied hints that he would go hunting for the two-time world champion at Brackley. The Mercedes boss pointed out that Fernando has a history with Mercedes that didn't end well.
“We do not want a repeat of the events of the season 280 as this would not benefit the team. He is certainly a great driver, but it is out of the question for us. As I said before, she has a certain history with Mercedes, which was not the best, so Alonso is not a realistic option for Mercedes. “
Remember, the Spaniard has been racing with Mercedes powertrains for years 2007. This was the season when we experienced the Spygate spy affair, details of which Alonso himself was supposed to publicize. McLaren Mercedes was fined 100. million dollars, and Alonso left the team after the season ended. Although the details are not completely clear, there was a lot of reporting at the time that Alonso would threaten Ron Dennis to release information about the affair to Fii unless he was assuredly given his first team role.
On the other hand, Wolff does not rule out that Sebastian Vettel used to race for Mercedes.
“Vettel is the racer that every team would like. We know he has a contract with Ferrari for next year, but we don't know what will happen next year 2021. ”
