The twenty one year old outscored his partner, Marcus Ericsson, in his new kid on the block season and helped the Swiss group complete in eighth place out of the ten groups in the constructors title.
Alonso told Corriere della Sera:
“He is young, intelligent, and talented. I’m curious to see if the Mercedes cycle will end. I feel that the moment is near.
I believe he has the combination of character and talent.”
When asked about his advice to young Charles, Alonso said:
“Learn to score points [regularly], to help the team, and remember that the World Championship is decided between July and September.
“Don’t be in a hurry and keep the excitement and emotion under control.”
