Alonso: F1 return getting more difficult

Fernando Alonso concedes that a return to Formula 1 will become more unlikely the longer he remains away from the sport.

Two-time world champion Alonso quit F1 at the end of 2018, having spent four years in a struggling McLaren team that saw his talents go somewhat wasted in the lower reaches of the field.

A failed bid to secure the 'Triple Crown' with victory at the Indianapolis 500 followed in 2019, while the Spaniard may look to add another famous race win to his resume in 2020 at the Dakar Rally.

F1's new set of regulations in 2021 could tempt Alonso back, although he has suggested in the past that he would only consider returning with a team capable of race wins.

Were he to return to the pinnacle of motorsports, however, he says he would do so with a much better mental approach.

"It is not impossible to return to Formula 1," Alonso told GQ. "But every year that passes will be more difficult.

"As I said in Abu Dhabi in 2018, it was a 'see you later', because I also don't have a crystal ball to know if I'm going back one day.
