Life is full of disappointments, but not many have been as crushing as the story of the McLaren Honda Formula One team. The return to that partnership conjured images of the Senna-Prost glory days, but it mostly meant DNFs, engine failures and Fernando Alonso’s sad, dead-looking eyes. But for 2018, things will be…
The FIA World Endurance Championship officially changed its 2018 schedule, moving the 6 Hours of Fuji back a week. The changes conveniently came after Formula One star Fernando Alonso announced he’d race the entire WEC season that didn’t conflict with his F1 schedule, and Fuji conflicted with his F1 schedule.
After apparently enjoying racing about 22 more hours than he’s used to at the Rolex 24, Formula One’s Fernando Alonso decided he’ll compete in all of the FIA World Endurance Championship races that don’t conflict with his F1 obligations this season. He, presumably, hates sleep.
One of the most exciting recent developments in Formula One is the reappearance of drivers driving in other series. For some reason—an unwillingness to risk getting hurt or break their focus or whatever—that hasn’t happened much recently. But as F1's Fernando Alonso and Lance Stroll have found out at this year’s Rolex…
McLaren Formula One driver Fernando Alonso’s quest to win the Triple Crown of Motorsport is one of the most pure and good things in motorsport right now. Lest you think “guy who likes racing does more of it and has fun” is a no-brainer, here’s ex-Red Bull F1, ex-Porsche 919 driver Mark Webber with a bad take.
There’s a very convincing looking fake Twitter account claiming that everybody’s favorite series-hopping Formula One driver Fernando Alonso is confirmed to drive for Toyota at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. But don’t get your hopes up just yet—it’s an extremely well done gag.
Fernando Alonso’s quest to win the Triple Crown of Motorsport (Monaco, Indy and Le Mans) continues, and we couldn’t love it more. Alonso confirmed to the World Endurance Championship today that he was going to test out the Toyota Ts050 LMP1 tomorrow, like he might be gunning for a Le Mans seat or something.
Two-time Formula One world champ and one-time (and hopefully more-times) Indianapolis 500 participant Fernando Alonso really wants to keep going with his quest to win the Triple Crown of Motorsport. One report suggests that he may try his hand at the 24 Hours of Le Mans with Toyota’s LMP1 team.
Formula One star Fernando Alonso is probably long accustomed to being the center of attention, but there’s a new star in his life that’s stealing some of the shine: a tiny cat. But for a long, tormenting two days after he shared a photo of the little angel, we did not know its name.
Fernando Alonso will run the 2018 Rolex 24 at Daytona with McLaren boss Zak Brown’s United Autosports team, according to a Racer report. Alonso, whose Formula One season with McLaren won’t start until the end of March, doesn’t have a deal to race Le Mans but would be allowed to by McLaren.
McLaren finally tossed its partnership with Honda aside, meaning the team will have a new, different, hopefully slightly better Renault power unit for the 2018 race season. But the McLaren team still has to ride out (however much it can of) the 2017 season with a Honda power unit, which totally blows.
The best thing about McLaren’s Formula One team right now is that they want to let their drivers drive in other series. We had to ask McLaren Technology Group Executive Director and real-life American in F1 Zak Brown if Fernando Alonso might drive at the 24 Hours of Daytona. “Stay tuned,” he told us.
McLaren confirmed today that Fernando Alonso will be staying with the Formula One team for next year alongside Stoffel Vandoorne, F1 announced. Thankfully, since McLaren will run Renault power units next year, they might actually have a competitive car.
Here’s something you probably didn’t know: The McLaren-Honda Formula One team isn’t great these days. Wild, right? The team’s two-time champ, Fernando Alonso, has threatened to leave all year in the same vein as a teenager saying they’ll never talk to you again, and he’s still not sure if he’ll stay around.
I get excited for the mail every day, but that’s probably because I work from home, live in a retirement neighborhood and am secretly 87-years-old. But getting something delivered by Formula One driver and professional sad man Fernando Alonso would be slightly more exciting than the daily mail truck.
McLaren may have finally found a way out of its bum Formula One engine deal with Honda, but it’s probably coming at the expense of Toro Rosso, according to multiple reports. Toro Rosso and McLaren will swap engine suppliers, but Toro Rosso’s best driver Carlos Sainz Jr. will be moving to Renault as a result.
McLaren Formula One sad boy Fernando Alonso made a minor tweak to his Twitter profile today that caught the eye of everyone hoping he’ll switch teams and have a more reliable car for 2018. He swapped the top photo from a shot of historic McLarens to a shot of his own karting facility. What does it MEAN?
Formula One is back! One of the hottest silly season rumors to come out of F1's first weekend back racing is that Williams might offer bad luck man Fernando Alonso a seat, reports Auto Motor und Sport. Williams! A team with a functional engine! Holy crap, please let this be true.
Fernando Alonso isn’t quite living his best life, but he did have his best finish of the season so far at today’s Formula One Hungarian Grand Prix, clinching the fastest lap of the race and embracing his iconic meme.
