Mercedes Says Spaniard Alonso and British Hamilton to Collaborate in Racing

Austrian investor and former racing driver Torger Christian “Toto” Wolff says Mercedes could make Fernando Alonso to collaborate with Lewis Hamilton

Mercedes are thinking about signing McLaren driver Fernando Alonso to replace Nico Rosberg, team boss Toto Wolff says.


Racing watchers say the move would reunite Alonso and Lewis Hamilton, who had a stormy partnership at McLaren in 2007.

“You have to consider Fernando,” Wolff told Sky Sports. “He is a driver I respect a lot. He combines talent, speed, and experience. It’s all there.”

Nico Rosberg, 31, retired from the business of racing five days after winning the Formula 1 world title.

But several analysts say the cost of buying out Alonso’s contract and considering his turbulent relationship with Hamilton could be a serious factor, and the main obstacle.

Sources say both Alonso and Hamilton had one troubled season together at McLaren, leading to Alonso’s acceptance of an early release from his contract.

But the two-time champion Alonso is entering the final year of his contract, which may force Mercedes to look elsewhere.
