Inside Line F1 Podcast: The power of Fernando Alonso
By:
Feb 11, 2018, 6:42 AM

Toyota and the World Endurance Championship (WEC) have done the unthinkable. They successfully lobbied to move the date of the Japanese round of the WEC to accommodate Fernando Alonso's Formula 1 commitments.

 Clearly, it isn't Mclaren alone who are swayed by Alonso's talent, power and fandom! 

Fernando Alonso's racing calendar for 2018 has gone viral. It seems that the Spaniard is trying to make up for all the racing laps he missed thanks to the Honda at the back of the Mclaren! Also, would we ever get to see an Alonso-Hamilton pairing at Mclaren? The sport and Mclaren are known to take u-turns at their own will. 

Finally, Hot Wheels' signing of Nico Rosberg as their 'Global Brand Ambassador' has come two years too late. They would have definitely benefited more when Rosberg went hot-wheelin' his Mercedes against Lewis Hamilton. Tune in!
