Alonso and Sainz see a different future

The Asturian rubs his hands. You will inherit a good Renault. Quite the opposite of the Madrid, who observes the hecatomb of Ferrari from the corner of his eye.


Carlos Sainz said on the eve of this atypical season that he couldn't help but glance at Ferrari. If you have, you may not have liked what you saw very much. At the moment, the Madrilenian has to deal with enough problems with the McLaren, with that treacherous exhaust last Sunday, or with some of the torturous stops of his mechanics, to be also thinking about his future in Maranello. But he will look from time to time, that's for sure. His signing for the mythical Italian brand has been one of the great news of the year for Spanish sports. Going to Ferrari is like signing for Real Madrid or the Los Angeles Lakers, you can't say no to a legend. Another thing is to land in good time. And the evolution of the F1 World Championship shows that this is not the case.

The Scuderia hit bottom at Spa-Francorchamps, where it failed to score. The 13th and 14th positions of Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc are very far from what is expected of a legendary car, which not so long ago, last year at that Belgian Grand Prix, won the victory on the same circuit. The doubtful legality of that engine is the origin of all evil. Mattia Binotto, the boss, says there is no other choice but to look at the 2021 and 2022 courses. In those years Carlos Sainz will already be there, hopefully with better benefits. And it will coincide on the Formula 1 grid with Fernando Alonso, the prodigal son who returns home from Renault. In the French factory the sensations are precisely the opposite. The fourth and fifth places of Daniel Ricciardo and Esteban Ocon in the last race have emboldened the staff, to the point that the Australian rider is already thinking about the podium and champagne corkscrews. Meanwhile, the Asturian rubs his hands. You will inherit a good car. Quite the opposite of Sainz.
