Alonso has decided to join a Swiss Division 3 football team to burn off his spare energy. Rather interestingly a certain M. Schumacher of Switzerland also plays in a Swiss Division 3 football team. So there is the rather bizarre chance that Alonso vs. Schumacher could happen again.
A friend who talked about this to the press made a wonderfully none-to-subtle jab at McLaren while talking about the situation when he said, “His goal is to be able to play simply, first of all to stay in shape, and to play a sport at the heart of a team“. You’d think being a driver in an F1 team would make you “at the heart of a team” wouldn’t you?
