It is now 12 years ago that he eventually could allow themselves to pay tribute to as the world champion in Formula 1. More than five years ago that he even won a race.
And although he probably always will be remembered as one of the largest, so was the last several years of his career, far from a dance on roses.
When he retired after the last grand prix in Abu Dhabi in november, gave it immediately makes sense for most.
But the former Renault, Ferrari and McLaren are running, Fernando Alonso, has apparently still not given up the dream of adding the promised third WORLD title to his collection.

In an interview with the Italian Corriere della Sera he tells that he never closed the door, finally for a return to motor sport's top shelf.
I have always said that it was at the reunion. Not good-bye.
- I don't have any plans for 2020. But of course it would be fantastic to win a third title, says Alonso.
even Though Alonso has not won anything in his last F1-time, so he could cheer on the side. He was a part of the Toyota team, which won the Le Mans in 2018.
Although he has now become 37 years old, he does not see age as a barrier to plunging into a new adventure.
Schumacher drove until he was 43. If you feel strong, you don't need to look at your age. You run, until you realize that someone else is stronger than you, " he says.
