FERNANDO Alonso has made a cheeky dig at his beloved Real Madrid – and himself.
The McLaren-Honda Formula 1 star claimed ‘a podium finish for me’ was more likely than Madrid winning La Liga this season.
The double World Champion also revealed he thinks F1 is ‘less spectacular’ now as he prepares to battle red-hot favourites Mercedes when the new season starts on March 20.
“Formula 1 is still the most technological and advanced sport, but it has lost something,” he said.
“The cars are less spectacular than a few years ago, we go round in much slower times. The sound has changed, the races have changed with the Pirelli tyres.”
