McLaren Racing Director Eric Boullier believes that Fernando Alonso made the right call moving from Scuderia Ferrari to his team over the winter.
Many in Formula One have criticised Alonso’s return to McLaren as Ferrari have returned to form in 2015 winning the Malaysian Grand Prix with Sebastian Vettel and are currently in second place in the championship, Alonso on the other had a struggled since his return to the Woking based outfit getting lapped by former team mate Kimi Raikkonen last time out.
Former world champion Jacques Villeneuve even suggested that the move had effectively ended Alonso’s career with the Canadian saying that the Spaniard will never win again.
However Boullier has defended the double world champion’s decision to return to McLaren saying that he does not think that he made the wrong decision. Last time out in Bahrain, Alonso finished the race just outside the top ten in eleventh place.
Boullier went on to say that Alonso knew going into the McLaren Honda project things would be difficult but that it is ‘very very young’.
