Motorsport pays tribute to departing Alonso

Published on 15 Aug 2018 09:32

Fernando Alonso announced on Tuesday that he would be leaving the sport at the end of the 2018 Formula 1 season. The veteran made his race debut back in 2001, before going on to spend 15 consecutive years in the sport.

Despite leaving F1 at the end of the year, it is not officially a retirement, as he is open to returning if McLaren becomes competitive once again. However after his announcement, plenty of figures in the motorsport world offered him their best.
