What If Fernando Alonso Joined Red Bull In 2009?
Welcome to this the third episode of ‘What Ifs In Formula 1’ where today I pose another interesting question; What if Fernando Alonso instead of staying at Renault in 2008 and 2009 and then joining Ferrari for 2010, decided to not join Ferrari and go instead to Red Bull for 2009 and take a different career path? How many more world titles would Fernando have won in his career? Would Alonso have eventually joined Ferrari after Red Bull? And just how big would the ‘Butterfly Effect’ in this situation be for so many drivers careers in Formula 1? For answers for these questions, make sure to check out this video.
I will also analyse why certain drivers careers such as Nico Rosberg, Sebastian Vettel, Kimi Raikkonen and Valtteri Bottas’ would have took dramatically different career paths between 2009 and 2018.
