"Alonso wants to win now"

Coulthard does not believe that the team meets the expectations of the Asturian: "He gives everything behind the wheel, but he returns because he wants to try champagne."


David Coulthard is not usually politically correct in his role as a Formula 1 reviewer. The Scottish former driver is one of the most respected in the paddock with 13 wins and 62 podiums in 246 grand prizes. In February he spoke to AS and was skeptical about a possible return of Fernando Alonso to the World Cup, something that has ended up happening. Confirmed his return to Renault from 2021, now Coulthard does not have much faith in the project, as defended in the official podcast of the Australian GP, 'The Fast Lane'.

"I think it is fiction, I don't think Fernando has the (necessary) patience. He wants to win now. He is another one of those riders who has energy, he will not be as smiling as Ricciardo but he needs to be surrounded by the best in the team and feel that each one performs at its maximum level. He gives everything behind the wheel for the team, but when he thinks that the team does not fulfill its part of the agreement, the marriage, he divorces, "says Coulthard.

"He knows this is his last chance. But he does not need to drive to prove that he is still a great driver, he wants to try champagne and I would like him to have that opportunity, I really would like to. But if he does not come, he cannot complain. a great career and perhaps he does not have the World Cups or the victories he deserves for his talent, but one is the result of his own decisions ", ends the former driver, who will be at Silverstone as a commentator on 'Channel 4', British open television.
