    I think we should all hate Toto Wolff.

    Because he is media trained to within an inch of his life which means he manages to not tell the truth without actually telling any lies. He makes out everything he does is for the good of the sport whilst really it's for the good of his own self interest.

    He is a politician. Everyone hates politicians.

    It was a bright career in Formula 1.
    Contrasts:
    on the one hand 2 championship titles and expert evaluation as the best pilot,
    on the other hand blackmail his team by court, Hungary 2007, Singapore 2008...
    He left his mark in the history of Formula 1.

    12 seasons without title for Formula 1 champion...
    It is record for all times.
    But I must admit that Fernando, or rather his character is the blacksmith of his own career.

    Years later it may seem that the sunset Alonso began
    with the arrival of the newcomer Hamilton
    on the same team with the Spaniard

    Agreed, and right from the first moment of the 2007 season. I'll never forget Hammy's debut start when he stormed past Alonso into turn one - F1 gold.

    I’m not sure if it was on purpose or not but Frenando means “breaking (as in applying the brakes) in Spanish, so kind of make sense you called him that

    Everything they mentioned in the video is so far back in history that people who didn't follow F1 10 years ago can't relate to any of it. It shows that Matt Adore has past his best before date. The only recent memories of him were the insults towards Honda, but in this day age I'm not surprised that people find it amusing, as nearly nothing else happens on track.

    The team radio they included of Alonso talking about karma is hilarious considering all the bad karma he must have accumulated during his career. 2004 (Briatore releasing Trulli to protect his little sunshine), McLaren 2007 (Spygate), Singapore 2008 (Crashgate), Hockenheim 2010 (Team order), Abu Dhabi 2010 (Complaining about Petrov not letting him pass). I also don't understand why everyone seems to want to put their head up his bum just to please the boy, especially Zak Brown and the other McLaren clowns. I'm certain that Alonso played a major role in McLaren terminating their engine agreement with Honda and he's retiring and now they're stuck with a Renault engine which is just as bad as Hondas.

    I agree with Dr. Helmut Marko that all Alonso does is bring chaos to a team which in effect overshadows his performance. A great driver without doubt, undeserving of more championships though, and it's time for someone to pierce his bubble.

    There's definitely something going on when a driver of his skill is not wanted by teams. Imagine how much farther up the grid Williams would be with Alonso instead of Stroll

    Alonso in a Williams? He'd barely be out of the garage before he was complaining about how awful the car was.

    Glowing tribute today from Kevin Magnussen:

    “Fernando was intentionally trying to be close in order to have a perfect slipstream and overtake into Turn One. That's just disrespectful.

    "I know he thinks he's a god but no way am I going to let him past me. It was just pretty stupid and unnecessary.

    "He came to me after qualifying and laughed to my face. It's outright disrespectful. I can't wait for him to retire."

    that was stupid from Alonso what was he thinking trying to overtake on fast lap around the outside. it was never going to work in qualifying. I agree with Kmag he was delusional to think anyone else was at fault but him. as magnussen had the line & right of way
