Three times a champion - Fernando Alonso wants more, more, more

Published by Christine

Fernando Alonso has only just clinched his second world championship and he's already focused on the next one. A lot of the news sites are reporting that Alonso only wants to win three championships and that's it. The way I read it, he wants to at least equal Ayrton Senna's record. At least. See what you think.

To join McLaren and never to race with Ferrari reminds me a lot of Ayrton Senna. He won three titles and for me, to retire with three and achieve what he achieved would be the object of my career.

To me that says he would rather be like Senna than Schumacher - not winning over and over again until everyone is sick of him.

Alonso's new challenge will be to abandon the best car there has ever been. His Renault R26-03 started the season opener in Bahrain seven months ago and the exact same chassis has finished the final race in Brazil. That almost never happens in modern F1.
