F1 not as exciting anymore: Fernando Alonso

Budapest: Spanish racing driver Fernando Alonso does not find Formula 1 as exciting as earlier and is tempted to join other forms of motor racing. The McLaren driver on Saturday said the speed of F1 cars and change of rules have diminished the appeal of the sport, reports BBC. “I love motorsport, all categories, and F1 is not as exciting as it was in the past, at least to me. Right now, there is huge motivation and a fantastic project that I am in with McLaren-Honda,” said the 33-year-old, who won the 2005 and 2006 world titles. “My first go-kart was a McLaren-Honda replica and I am in a real McLaren-Honda so I am enjoying this process of getting competitive starting from zero. But with no testing, with these tyres, with these limitations, with the calendar for example of next year, there is the temptation for other categories, that is true.”
