The last three years were very unpleasant, and it took a lot of patience. But I think next year we will be very competitive.We have seen in Mexico that Verstappen was able to do a great race with this engine. Can we do the same I don't know. It is difficult to understand because we have no data for comparison. The engine looks very good. In the last few races we have introduced aerodynamic upgrades, and they worked well, so next year we have a chance of success.I hope we will be able to compete with Hamilton for the title next year".Recall that Alonso played for the factory team of Renault in 2003-2006, 2008 and 2009, In 2005 and 2006, Fernando became the champion.
