Former Grand Prix winner discusses Alonso's penchant for politics

Ex- F1 race winner Jarno Trulli discusses how Fernando Alonso liked playing politics with his teammates, in turn maximising his advantage.

Ex Formula 1 star Jarno Trulli has citied Fernando Alonso's inclination towards playing mind games and politics within a team, stating that these two facets help make him the driver he is today.

Former Italian race winner Trulli served as Alonso's teammate for two seasons just as the Spainiard was finding his feet in Formula 1. The former Toyota driver is well placed to assess what makes the Alpine man such a good driver.

"Fernando is one of those drivers which plays mind games and (is) political in his team," Trulli said on the Beyond the Grid podcast.

"Of course he always tried to get the best out of the team and politics inside the team, for himself. He always tried to centre the attention around himself, and you have to expect this from the top driver anyway he wants all the attention for himself.

"I’m not like him; I always prefer to prove myself with results rather than the politics. And probably, this was one of my mistakes.

"But it’s also part of a driver, a top driver which eventually wants to be top of the team and wants to be number one. So I don’t blame him."

Trulli also went on to state that his former teammate has lost none of his drive and will be a threat in what is his second stint in Formula 1.

"I’ve been talking with Fernando recently, I have to say something: Fernando, as I said, is 10 years younger than me so this is already a good thing for him," Trulli explained.

"But Fernando, differently from me, in his head, he’s still eager to drive, he has nothing else in his mind rather than driving. I can’t see him failing in what he will be doing, and he is still very fit.

"The big question mark is probably not how good will be Fernando; the real question mark will be how good will be his car in order to put Fernando in the position to fight for the top. I have very little doubt about Fernando, simply because I could see him still extremely motivated.

"Let’s cross our fingers and hope [Alpine] can deliver a good enough car to give Fernando the chance to enjoy Grand Prix racing for 2021."
