Alonso recalled his MotoGP experience, and revealed that it was a very scary experience.

“It’s incredible what this bike can do,” he said, as quoted by GP blog.

“I didn’t have the elbow down, just my knee, although I really only wanted to scratch the leather – so I was able to prove that I was down. But it was very scary.”

Alonso returned to F1 after some years away from the sport and signed for Alpine. He had a great season in 2021, and feels ready to go one step further in the coming years. In other words, it is El Plan time.

“I feel good, honestly, I feel an advantage, you know? When I come to a circuit, I know the circuits,” he said.

“Even now, you know everyone is testing this 18-inch tire and I know very well these tires from the WEC (with Toyota).

“I think I only see the advantages. Physically, I think the cars of today are not very demanding. I can do 300 laps with these cars, so there is not a problem physically.” he concluded.
