Formula 1 has a grand plan for 2021 - to cut costs, cap spending, reduce complexity and increase competition. F1's new owners wish to create a utopia of grand prix racing, with spectacular races delivering unpredictable results in front of huge numbers of fans.
This is a vision Fernando Alonso surely wants to see realised too, having spent time during more than one FIA press conference recently bemoaning the "sad" predictability of F1's current competitive order.
It is little wonder Alonso is upset. He hasn't won race since 2013, and hasn't stood on the podium for 73 races. The last time he started on pole position for a grand prix, Michael Schumacher was still racing, Formula 1 had V8 engines, and Max Verstappen was still at school.
