Formula 1 legend Fernando Alonso is showing no signs of slowing down despite being in his early 40s. The Spanish driver, who recently joined Aston Martin, has expressed his eagerness to continue racing in the sport for a few more years. However, he has deemed his new teammate Lance Stroll as a future world champion. 

Alonso's recent race in Baku saw him finish in fourth place, missing out on the podium for the first time this season. However, he was only a fraction of a second behind Charles Leclerc's Ferrari, indicating that he is still a fierce competitor on the track.


One of the standout moments of the race for fans was the collaboration between Alonso and Stroll. Alonso provided Stroll with valuable tips on adjusting brake balance, demonstrating his willingness to share knowledge and work as part of a team.

Despite being in his 20th season in Formula 1, Alonso has no plans to retire anytime soon. He has also made it clear that he is committed to working with Stroll to help him to be in the best position possible when he does decide to retire. 

During an interview with media after the Azerbaijan Grand Prix, Alonso explained:

"I know that I will be in the sport for a few more years. After that, he [Stroll] will lead the team for the next 10 or 15 years.

"So I hope I can help Lance as much as I can in the next few years."

Alonso's passion and dedication to the sport is truly inspiring. As he continues to compete at the highest level, he is also looking to share his wealth of experience with his younger teammates. It is this kind of teamwork and mentorship that can take a team to new heights and produce future champions.
