The reason Alonso didn’t sign for Red Bull


before renew with Aston Martin until 2026, Fernando Alonso looks like one of the strongest candidates to go to Red Bull next year if Checo Pérez is not renewed or if Verstappen, in the middle of a power struggle in the team, decides to leave.

But The ‘relationship’ between the Asturian driver and the group sponsored by energy drinks goes back further, and on more than one occasion the fate of both in Formula 1 was linked.

This is confirmed, in recent statements, by a legend like Helmut Marko, now Red Bull advisorwho said that Alonso had the opportunity to sign for them… A few years ago: “We were talking to Alonso in the early years of Red Bull Racing. I don’t think he thought we were capable of making cars that could compete to win world championships. And that didn’t work out”examined the Austrian in a conversation with Formel 1.

However, Marko did not hesitate to praise Alonso and his amazing performance at the age of 42: “You can’t achieve everything in life, but it obviously depends on the driver’s personality, and again, I take my hat off to him for the incredible performance he continues to offer despite his age”.
