after Anthoine Hubert's passing, cars and drivers all had a message ranging from stickers, hash tags, helmets, dedications.

I do remember Alguersuari having Ciao Henry on his helmet in his first GP in Hungary 2009, as a tribute to Henry Surtees

Daniel Ricciardo has a special pre-season testing helmet paying tribute to Kobe Bryant.

The purple helmet features the term ‘Mamba Mentality’ on the back, a reference to Bryant’s 'Black Mamba' nickname.

It also features KB24 on one side, a reference to Bryant’s playing number with the Lakers, and KB8 on the other.

Oh but it is, the problems are that the talent does not outweigh the baggage that comes with it, such is like.

Never caused Senna, Prost, Mansell or Piquet much of an issue when seeking alternative drives?

I donít know, it is said Alesiís fiery reputation counted against him getting a top drive at times

That response has nothing to do with Alonso at all. If the top teams thought Alonso to be worth the investment he would be driving in F1, what is hard to understand about that? What makes him so entitled to demand that he won't return unless it is in a winning car.

What i've said stands. My point being that they all had quite demanding personalities that created drama, could placed a strain on their teams and sometimes divided them too. But the fact that they were so good always meant that they could court top drives and the top teams were always interested regardless of any baggage they might bring.

It shouldn't be any different for Alonso, or Hamilton for that matter.

Think it says a lot about the way F1 has gone! Teams feel that an accepted top line driver with such a mentality isn't first choice anymore. Maybe because the driver can't make such a difference as they could in previous eras.

Sorry if i'm taking this away from the main topic guys..

If he was worth the investment he would be in a team, that he is not in a team says it all. Pretty simple really but most don't see it that way except for the ones doing the hiring and they definitely do.

We'll have to agree to differ there then.

It's anything but simple.

If he's not worth the investment, that would be down to Alonso pursuing his dream of the Triple Crown. There are now so many races on the F1 calendar, I would think it is impossible to race in another series as well, what with the commitment that is required to participate in 21 GPs. Where would a driver find the time? A team wouldn't want a driver to skip races.

That is what a team or sponsor does when it is all said and done, they make an investment in a driver that is expected to make a dividend, nothing more and nothing less. It's a cold hard fact but when looked at in that sense, Alonso does not stack up or he would not be standing on the sidelines.

That is just an excuse and does not stack up at all.
