Two Time Formula 1 Champion Fernando Alonso is leaving McLaren. Now, why doesn’t that surprise me? After a whole lot of controversial year for McLaren and Alonso, this was bound to happen. Alonso cuts short the three-year contract with McLaren after the very first year. Alonso finished third this season in overall standings behind Ferrari’s driver and current world champion Kimi Raikkonen and his teammate Lewis Hamilton.
Since I have just started blogging, I would like to mention that I am a big follower of Formula 1 racing. I had always favored McLaren as the constructors and loved the likes of Finnish driver Mika Hakkinen, Kimi Raikkonen, David Coulthard, Juan Pablo Montoya, and yeah to some extent Michael Schumacher as well. I guess, This year McLaren lost its place in my favorites book. But I am happy for Kimi Raikkonen. He is a real fighter. Anyways, I will end this post by wishing Alonso my best wishes in finding some good team and of course the years ahead. It should be an exciting next season. Already waiting….
