    That place where Ro-Gro went off yesterday and red flagged the session should suffice?

    Alonso 'I delivered the goods'.

    Alonso is a world champion at PR.


    Alonso delivers the goods for McLaren

    Don't know what he is on about. All he did was start at the back from the pit lane and finish the race ahead of both of the two highly praised young drivers. He had the magnificent McLaren with an engine more powerful than his rivals so it was a piece of doddle. /sarcasm

    I have in no way suggested Alonso did not have a good drive. I'm just suggesting that after the awful 2 weeks Mclaren have had, after its become clear how shocking the car and team structure are, it's only Fernando and his team that could swing a headline 'Alonso delivers goods for Mclaren'. It's nice to focus on his drive but Geez does it gloss over a massive elephant in the room.

    They were running nose-to-tail all through the Spanish GP too. Sweet.

    In that article it is nice to see "Alonso’s performance also drew praise from racing director Eric Boullier".

    The 2019 Australian GP will be on March 17, and consequently will clash with the Sebring 12 Hours, a points-paying round of the World Endurance Championship.

    Decisions, decisions.

    I know the Triple Crown in Monaco, Le Mans and Indy but I don't believe anyone has ever won the F1 World Champioship and the Endurance World Championship. I reckon Fernando could be after that, along with Indy and being Indy Car Champion. That would really be some achievement.

    All he needs then in the Moto GP and the BTCC titles :D

    Indeed not. The "closest" were probably Ickx, Webber and, er, Brundle. Fernando is currently leading the standings, of course, but if he missed Sebring his team mates Buemi and Nakajima could claim the title without him; you have to drive all the events (reasonably enough).

    Given that the Indy 500 will clash with Monaco again, I wonder if Fernando would consider "doing a Mansell" next year and timesharing the McLaren drive with Lando Norris?

    I thought they'd all got together to make sure there were no clashes anymore? Motorsport has enough problems with attendance and viewing figures without having to compete with itself.

    WEC moved the Japanese round at Toyota's urging to enable Alonso to appear at their home track. Other than that, F1 suits itself and everyone else has to work around it.

    Alonso may be considering the Vuelta FB.

    Fernando says he is very annoyed at FOM broadcasting his radio messages all the time.

    Alonso questions FOM's 'problem' with his radio messages to McLaren

    Which is odd because I was pretty much under the impression his radio messages were deliberately like that so they would get broadcast.

    Do we think Fernando might have called up Christian Horner today?

    Geri probably picked it up. Alonso will be in the new Spice Girls line up.
