The 2017 Formula One season could be a make or break season for Fernando. He already has two world championships to his credit, however he is still hungry for a third, which seems to constantly elude him. After leaving Renault and then McLaren due to a clash with Lewis Hamilton, Fernando thought a Ferrari drive would bring the desired result. However, this failed to materialize so he left to return to McLaren as they began a new chapter with Honda. Sadly, the Honda power unit hasn’t lived up to expectations and it appears as if Alonso is running out of patience for the Japanese engine giant to fix the continuing issues.
