Fernando Alonso, five years in the Ferrari and twice was close to the title, losing in the final race of the season. Ex-president of Ferrari Luca di Montezemolo suggested that one of the reasons was the nature of the Spaniard …

Luca di Montezemolo: “He remained on his own, and did not become part of Ferrari. He was happy with victories, and considered defeat a problem for the team. Fernando was less close with the team than Michael Schumacher or Niki Lauda, ​​especially in difficult periods. It is always easy to support the team in a successful period.

Alonso achieved excellent results. I believe that he was not inferior to Hamilton and Vettel, and in the race was very similar to Michael. Fernando has always been and remains a great racer. He missed the title in 2010 and 2012 through no fault of his own. If then he had achieved his goal, today we were talking about something else. ”
