Everyone likes to see Alonso take a win. Even Max Verstappen.
Max Verstappen did not win in Saudi Arabia, but he is still number one in the championship. This is due to the fact that he took another point for the fastest race lap. This much to the dismay of Perez.
Verstappen therefore did not grant Peréz the fastest race lap, but he does grant something to a rival outside his team. We are talking about Alonso, who has a warm heart for Verstappen. And vice versa.
During the press conference earlier today, a possible victory for Alonso was discussed. That is what many F1 viewers hope for. Not only them, Max Verstappen would also like it. “I would like to see him win more,” says Max. He thinks Alonso deserves more wins than the 32 he now has to his name.
Alonso’s next victory would therefore be number 33. We know that figure from somewhere, because that was of course Verstappen’s old race number. Jokes are immediately made about this: Alonso says he wants to take over the number 33 if he takes another victory.
Let’s not be cynical for once: it’s nice to see that there is mutual respect between these two-time world champions. Although that is of course always a lot easier if there is no real battle.
