Fernando Alonso believes that current top teams will not surely be on the same level next year.
Formula 1 is set to enter the new era with the introduction of new regulations next year. The changes might shake up the field and Alonso supposes that it could happen at the top of the field.
“I think there is no guarantee, no feeling that you can put on the future on any team, basically,” he said.
“Probably even the top teams that are dominating the sport now, they are rightly concerned about the new rules and how they will interpret those cars.
“What you see next year in the first couple of races is the first year of that set of regulations. Eventually, you will see the same results for four or five years as we saw, a team that is dominant at the beginning of one set of rules, they seem to keep that advantage for year; everything gets closer and closer, but the same one is winning.
“So next year is going to be interesting, especially for the younger drivers, how they decide the future. Because no one, no team has a guarantee that they will perform well.”
Furthermore, the Alpine driver does not have any predictions for the team’s 2022 challenger so far.
“We are working on next year’s project but it’s very early days and no one knows what the numbers are, because you have nothing to compare against,” Alonso commented.
“We will see different philosophies, we will see different ideas and will be time to be sharp and react if we see something interesting.”
