Gasly was a season too soon, which only came about by Ricciardo's departure and no other really suitable replacements from a Red Bull backed point

In Lewis Hamilton and some on here and other sites comments yes. In reality, well let's see they won't let McLaren sign with Andretti and run at Indy even though HPD very much wanted that deal. So I'm going to guess that's a big negatory on Alonso ever with a Honda program again.

I agree that Honda is basically done with Alonso. Bridges has been burnt. Time might heal wounds, but Alonso is in the twilight of his career, so time is running out. We may never see him in a Honda again.

Well if you are going to drag the topic back to being about Williams.....

In the prevailing opinion which of the last two GP's reflect better where they are at? In other words does the German or the Hungarian result better reflect the level of progress they have/have not made recently.

Are they tied to the last two places on the grid for the rest of the year or will the updates allow them to compete with someone - even get into Q2?

Yes... back on topic.

I think I read somewhere recently that Alonso had put feelers out to Mercedes, Ferrari and RBR only. The article discussed various reasons why its unlikely he would be land a ride at any of those three. I expect we may not see Alonso back in F1 unless Alonso settles for a lesser team. And I dont see that happening. But I would love for him to prove me wrong.

I'd really like to see him pitch his talent against Norris or Russell, he can afford to buy the drive.

It would be good for both the fans and the teams. He is a known commodity and it seems he knows car setup and can articulate it. Would be good to see him in either car testing but I think the rules sadly prohibit it and teams would find a way to screw things up

Alonso has had a melt down every time he has finished up in a car that couldn’t win.Thats why he left F1 last year.That means the only options he would take are Mercedes,Red Bull and Ferrari.No chance of a drive with any of those because of respectively Lewis,Honda and long memories.

Indeed, I'd love to know why McLaren took him back, perhaps only to prove the first time wasn't a monumental cock-up?
