Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff made it clear to the BBC that, despite his undeniable quality, Fernando Alons had the Mercedes door closed.
The two-time world champion enjoys the reputation of being one of the best racers of the last decade. The Spaniard left Formula 1 after the end of last season, and lately we have witnessed many rumors that the Spaniard wants to return to Mercedes at the wheel of F1. Silver arrow boss Toto Wolff points out that Fernando Alonso has some outstanding bills with Mercedes.
“He certainly is a great driver, but not a pleasure for us.” As I said, he 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 punished with an astronomical penalty 100. million dollars, and Alonso left the team after the season ended. Although the details are not entirely 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.
