Fernando Alonso is a Formula One racing driver from Spain. He is currently racing for Scuderia Ferrari and has gained talent and recognition over the years. In this year's Ferrari champion season, he has not been racing to the same caliber as previous years.
Bernie Ecclestone, Formula One supremo and former champion couldn't help but express his disappointment towards Alonso's performance at Ferrari this year. The 83-year-old former racer believed that the younger racer gave up too quickly and did not try as hard as he normally would, suggesting that something distracted him from his performance.
Alonso was the runner-up this season, Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel racing ahead of him and gaining first place for the fourth year in a row. Alonso has been anxious to compete with Red Bull, explaining his distraction and his loss of victory. He was anxious about impressing the other team and didn't focus enough on coming in first place ahead of Vettel.
McLaren had been anxious to sign Alonso, who participated with Red Bull in 2007. However, Alonso's results this season have not been promising and his wish to get on this team may not happen until he can up his performance like he did in previous seasons. The racer is still a talented professional who will hopefully make a comeback and begin racing for his dream team.
