Why F1 should expect fireworks from Alonso-Ocon in 2021

Following a Styrian Grand Prix high in intrigue on and off the track, Autosport's technical consultant answers your questions on the impending return of Fernando Alonso, McLaren's upturn in form and more woe for Ferrari

I wouldn't say I was surprised, no. I've always had a feeling that Fernando wasn't finished with Formula 1. For the team, it's a bit of a coup, but with Sebastian Vettel on the market he's probably jumped at the chance to come back in. He's now 38, and will be 39 when the season starts, so knows he's going to be at the end of his racing career fairly soon.

I think he's grabbed it because he likes to be in the limelight and he's not got a full programme this year, which will be difficult at this stage of his career. But he's still fit and hungry, he can still achieve great things and I'm sure he will have gained an enormous amount from doing LMP1 with Toyota.
