McLaren Racing CEO Zak Brown’s phone has been flooded with missed calls from former driver Fernando Alonso.
Reports indicate that following the impressive P5 and P6 at the French GP Qualifying, the x2 World Champion wants back in.
“I DO want.” ‘Nando said in one of his voice messages.
McLaren have been showing glimpses of improvement throughout the season, but the shock out-qualifying of the two Red Bulls AND a Ferrari caught the Spaniard’s attention.
“Mate, the engine looks good, much faster than before.” Alonso mentioned in the 23rd voice message
“Amazing.” he complemented, (this time unironically) in voice message number 34.
Rumours suggest Alonso is angling at a return to McLaren in 2020.
“I want to come back to where it all ended…” he said in his 65th voice message to Brown.
“I love McLaren.” – Voice message 82.
“I love you.” – He said in his 90th voice message, possibly crying.
Asked if he has any plans on returning the calls the ecstatic CEO replied,
“I’ll get Andreas Seidl to do it.”
“He’s doing everything else…” Brown added.
