April 1, 2015 – Ferrari will not be missing its departed number 1 driver and double world champion Fernando Alonso.
That is the view of the Spaniard’s former Renault teammate Jarno Trulli, who today can be found running his own team in the new Formula E series.
After five years of trying to win the title, Alonso left Ferrari at the end of last season to join the struggling McLaren-Honda project, but Trulli said Ferrari will not be missing him after Alonso’s replacement, Sebastian Vettel, won the Malaysian Grand Prix against the odds.
“Sebastian brought a freshness to the team that had been lost because it did not have the best relationship with Alonso. I have worked with Alonso, and he is difficult to work with.” Trulli told the Italian newspaper Tuttosport.
“Now as a manager of a team, I would prefer Vettel,” he added.
