It seems that Alonso will go to Mercedes…

Bottas, Verstappen, Alonso, Pascal, Ocon, Petrov, Maldonado, Vettel, Ricciardo,… more than half the grill, even those that have a contract or are outside of the F1 have been called to the door of Mercedes because they all want to be pilots of the dominant force of the last championships. Many names have been sounded as to occupy the seat of Nico Rosberg and be-mate Lewis Hamilton in 2017.

Even Wolff has joked and has spoken of Rossi and Lorenzo, as potential candidates. What is certain is that proposals are not missing, what is difficult for Mercedes will be to select the best option. In addition, as we announced, the coming year will approach profound changes in the technical regulations, and the car-dominant may not be the best of all, so to make that step with changes so profound it is all a risk, though still the favorite…

Alonso empuja su McLaren-Honda

Always the best teams are the favorites for next year, but we already saw that what happened to Red Bull when they changed the rules of search engines, precisely 2014 was not a good year for them. For this reason, what now seems the better option, going to Mercedes, it may not be the best seen the changes that will follow. Yes, both Ferrari, like Red Bull and Mercedes have been the only ones to test the new tires and that is an advantage, although the data is shared with the rest of the teams… but the tires are not everything.

What I say in the title comes because Alonso is now in what they call the Thank Day, rolling with a MotoGP Honda, antique cars of the japanese brand, etc, There has been said that “Is an honor to be able to be a pilot of McLaren-Honda. […] Next year we will see you again.” Although in F1 you lie a lot and everything has to be picked up with tweezers and analysed or not to believe too much until the official statements, it seems that lets see that will continue with them in 2017, something that it seems logical to me, it has sucked two bad years and perhaps the next is the awakening and what is going to go now?
