Former Ferrari boss and current Lamborghini CEO Stefano Domenicali says that Fernando Alonso is racing outside of Formula 1 to prove he remains one of the world’s best drivers.



Domenicali told Corriere dello Sport newspaper in Italy, “Fernando is looking for challenges outside of Formula 1 because his team is going through a difficult period. He wants to demonstrate his skills, to prove that he remains one of the best in the world.”

And Domenicali said it is clear to him that Alonso remains among the best F1 drivers even a decade after his last title.


“Who is stronger: he or Hamilton?” he asked. “It’s difficult to assess. Someone is better in qualifying, someone in the race, someone psychologically. Today, at the top, there are three drivers: Alonso, Hamilton and Vettel. The differences between them are minimal and depends on the cars they drive.”


As for the 2018 season, Domenicali said, “I think this year we will see the Ferrari and Mercedes duel again. But you cannot forget about Red Bull, who will surely win several Grands Prix.”


Finally, Domenicali was asked if Lamborghini might come into F1 any time soon, and he answered: “Formula 1 is not a priority for Lamborghini, at least for the next five years.”
