Are you surprised that Fernando Alonso has walked away from Formula 1, and where do you stand on the argument that he's a troublemaker and that has made it difficult for him to get a deal with a top team?

I'm not surprised at all. He is a double world champion - albeit with his last title coming over a decade ago - and it is a waste of his talent to drive around in the midfield year after year.
Alonso is in a team that is going through a crisis and I think his walking away just shows that he hasn't been convinced by the McLaren management that the end of that crisis is in sight.
