Fernando Alonso Did Not Take Kindly To Johnny Herbert's Opinion On Sky Sports F1

Fernando Alonso Did Not Take Kindly To Johnny Herbert's Opinion On Sky Sports F1

The Formula One circus is in Bahrain this weekend.

Someone who will not be racing is Fernando Alonso. The McLaren-Honda driver failed a medical during the week and has been deemed unfit to participate.

On the opening weekend of the season in Australia, the Spaniard was involved in a horrifying crash which saw his car simultaneously flip and disintegrate.

Speaking on Sky Sports F1, former driver Johnny Herbert said cited that crash along with what he sees as a lack of motivation from Alonso as reasons for why the two-time world champion should retire.

The things he says, the things that have happened on track, his qualifying pace, and that error in Australia, to me they say it is time for him to hang up his helmet.

Herbert's opinion is something with which Alonso undoubtedly disagreed. Alonso made an impromptu appearance on Sky Sports this afternoon to confront Herbert and have a little dig at his lack of titles.

You are not a true champion. You ended up as a commentator because you are not a true champion.

Herbert attempted to dismiss the jibe but you can certainly hear the annoyance in his voice.
