Will Fernando Alonso give us a chance to miss him? He was testing an old Mclaren Formula 1 car a day after what was supposedly his final race. Anyway, what year could Alonso be back in Formula 1 – 2020, 2021 or 2022? Also, more than what year, it will also be a question of with which team. We certainly don’t think it would be Ferrari, Mercedes or Red Bull. We discuss his possible comeback options.
In this week’s episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Mithila and Kunal wonder if Alonso’s exit would see a mass exodus of fans from Formula 1 – that’s exactly what happened when Michael Schumacher quit. History and statistics tell us why Stoffel Vandoorne can be a Formula E Champion. We offer Racing Point creative ways to announce their signing of Lance Stroll. Did Ferrari back the wrong driver in 2018? Forget a fast car, Renault better have a witty social media team for Daniel Ricciardo. And finally, was Lewis Hamilton’s ‘shirtey’ moment a lame attempt to give us something more than Ricciardo’s ‘shoey’? Tune in!
