Leave it to Fernando Alonso to not only deviate from his boss’s viewpoint on the FIA’s recent scoring system changes but to execute a proverbial drop-kick on the FIA and FOM. Fernando is saying what most fans are feeling and he succinctly points out that we don’t get to address the WMSC or the FIA.
“I don’t understand the need to change the rules of the sport constantly. I think this kind of decisions can only confuse the fans,” Alonso said in a statement on his personal website.
“Formula 1 has existed for over 50 years thanks to the teams, the sponsors, the drivers and, above all, the fans from all over the world, and none of them have been able to express their views in front of the FIA.
“I worry, not so much about the decisions that affect the season that’s about to start, but, above all, those that affect the future of the competition in the coming years.
“I hope somehow these measures can be reconsidered in the short-term.”
The media have found Jenson Button and Fernando Alonso concerned about the changes and the question is, how long will it take them to find a driver who thinks its terrific? The decision is nonsensical and Fernando has just given a voice to the concern shared by many of F1’s most ardent fans. Thank you Fernando; thank you, thank you, thank you.
