Alpine executive director Marcin Budkowski believes veteran Fernando Alonso has "silenced for good" those who doubted his F1 comeback.
Following a two-year hiatus, Alonso endured a troubled start to his return to the sport as the two-time champion collected just five points from his first five races.
But the Spanish driver has overcome any early adjustment difficulties with the car to score points in his past five grands prix, notably rewinding the clock with a charging drive in F1's first sprint race over the British Grand Prix weekend.
