Fernando Alonso has spoken about how modern Formula 1 drivers are more capable of lasting longer in the sport, given the advancements in training and technology.
The Spaniard, who has been in Formula 1 for over two decades, believes that the rising stars of today know how to train and communicate better than when he first burst onto the scene in 2001.
With at least a year left on his Aston Martin contract, and a whole lot of talent left, it’s likely that Alonso could push to remain in a car until he is 45 years old – a feat only few sportsmen have achieved while continuing to play at a high-level (Tom Brady comes to mind).
