Alonso has from the point of view of 54 – yearlings with his politics and temperament built a return to the premier class. “The disrespect for Honda back then was outrageous, this way of snapping at your own employer,” Lehto lists as an example compared to ' Speedweek ' .

No automaker will ever forget this behavior. Specifically, Lehto alludes to Alonso's dealings with the former McLaren engine partner. At his home race in Suzuka, of all places, the Spaniard raged on the team radio and publicly blasphemed about the “GP2 engine”.

Later the Spaniard explained that this statement was not intended for the public . Nevertheless, the two-time world champion lost it, at least for the Japanese. This was evident this year in Alonso's search for an IndyCar cockpit, Honda prevented Alonso from joining Andretti.

“Nobody doubts Alonso's abilities,” Lehto states. “But if we call United States of America a reminder of how many bridges he has burned behind me, then I simply cannot imagine that a Formula 1 racing team would still want to take it.”
