Fernando Alonso has absolutely rammed into Christian Horner for his statement on his ability to work in teams.
Alonso was really unhappy about the comments made about and his work ethic and has disclosed that Red Bull had approached him 6 times over a possible move, two of which were this year(once in Monaco and once in August).
Alonso also revealed that Horner had apologised to him after the interview during the summer but the Spaniard was expecting an apology this weekend as well
“I had a couple of offers from Red Bull,” Alonso told Sky Sports.
“In fact I had in 2007, in 2009, in 2011, ’13, and two this year, one in Monaco, and one in August.
“So I’m happy you asked me this question, because the comments of Christian Horner this summer and Mr [Helmut] Marko are completely out of context, surprise comments about me creating chaos, difficult man to work with.
“One, they never worked with me, and secondly they’ve been chasing me for five or six occasions in the last seven years, and now they say that, that they are loyal to their programme and their commitments and their junior drivers.
“It has been weird, it has been unfair to me. I wrote to Christian after his comments thus summer, he apologised by email, and hopefully he’ll apologise again this weekend.” he added.
Horner, however, has confirmed that an offer did go out to Alonso, but that was back in 2007.
“Obviously Flavio reached out, even FOM reached out, but it was clear from the onset,” Horner told Channel 4.
“We did offer Fernando Alonso a contract, but that was back in 2007! To my knowledge, no one within Red Bull has offered him one since.
“He’s a wonderful driver, he’s a great talent, but it just doesn’t fit the profile of our team, our investment in youth and the junior programme that’s been so successful over the last 10 years.” he concluded.
