Is Fernando Alonso's career effectively over?

I don't think so. Fernando joined Ferrari to win world championships and that hasn't happened for various reasons, but his talent and aggression are still very much in place and I don't think anyone can blame him for losing that touch of motivation recently.
In today's Formula 1 the driver is far too reliant on the performance of the car. If you look at 2013 and '14, the Mercedes drivers are the same talented individuals they were before, it's just the equipment that they had to work with this year was much better.
