Fernando Alonso He is one of the friendliest drivers on the grid of the Formula 1 and he shows it every weekend. This Thursday, in the preview of the local race for the team Alpine, did a helmet exchange with one of the most controversial riders in the paddock: Nikita mazepin. The Asturian continues to add to his huge collection of helmets, located in his museum in Oviedo, Spain.
The exchange took place in the pit lane between the Asturian and the Russian. Although it is not known what they said, Mazepin signed the beautiful orange helmet that identifies him, while Alonso did the same with the blue helmet that he wears in each race. This caused some criticism for the Spanish rider, who always stood out for his respect in the different categories.
Mazepin, who remains in the focus of controversy since he arrived in Formula 1, expressed his happiness for changing the helmet with his ‘Hero who watched on television’, he said on his social networks. In recent days, the Russian pilot stressed that the relationship between him and Alonso is one of the best on the grid.
For his part, Alonso continues to change helmets for his collection. A few days ago, the Asturian did the same with one of the future stars in Formula 1: George Russell. Amid the team change rumors, Russell shared the phrase Alonso wrote on his helmet. The pilot of Williams sounds loud to move on to Mercedes the next season.
‘Future champion’ Alonso wrote on Russell’s helmet, who shared the image on his social networks. Several of the riders on the grid are very young, and that is why they express their idolatry for riders of the stature of Alonso, Lewis hamilton or Sebastian vettel, who are the oldest in the paddock.
