The Godfather part 3: “McLonso”.

 “I'll make him an offer he can't refuse.”
Mario Puzo, The Godfather
They made it in McLaren. Although, in our case, it is better to say "makes them an offer", makes by Fernando Alonso. And all would be good, everyone is happy, and they are all glad. In this way they could say “It was good luck!”. Now the team has got a quick Formula One champion, and the champion got a really friendly team - Mclaren F1 team, although in our case it's better to say “lovely”. Don’t agree? Look for some kind of other Formula One team that the driver was doing like that. How? Now Fernando Alonso will be able to perform not only in Formula One but also in other series, for example, Indycar or Le mans. Well, I suggest renaming the team in McLonso for that no one would experience difficulties.

“Friendship is everything. Friendship is more than talent. It is more than the government. It is almost the equal of family.- Don Corleone”
Mario Puzo, The Godfather
And everything seems to be so clear, that you couldn’t find faults. I look at this union and it reminds me... The Godfather movie. However, everything is too sweet for real life. Otherwise, why would to do this commercial offer? Why do we need to get Spanish textbooks when Fernando Alonso is known English and French languages so well? We praise the champion or create an idol?

“Great men are not born great, they grow great . . .”

Mario Puzo, The Godfather
I don’t want to argue. The driver’s achievements are unique. Not so many other Formula One drivers could be compared by his patience and endurance, but I've got questions about his performances on the racetrack for the future. These appeared only after this mass fuss about the contract with Mclaren. Even Sebastian Vettel didn’t marry by Scuderia Ferrari at one time with this fuss of smiles. We all know Fernando Alonso's
 status in Formula One, so could we assume his talent on the racetrack is the merit of the team?

“Italians have a little joke, that the world is so hard a man must have two fathers to look after him, and that's why they have godfathers.”

Mario Puzo, The Godfather
What if this is the real merit of the team? Then why Yusuke Hasegawa spoke about Fernando Alonso who did not like everyone in the team? I have another question. What if this is just the work of the managers and the press attache? It is most likely. Honestly, it's not tight as it's not so good. It seems that Fernando Alonso is building a team, and he decides its future. It is commendable for the driver and the failure for the directors.

"You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth"

Exodus 20:4
I’m always trying to notice everything that looks like a fake, I’m greeting for sincere emotions and real joy, real power, not idolatry. Apparently, these things doing in Mclaren F1 Team. In such a case, let's rename the team to Mclonso. So, it sounds good and truthfully. What am I talking about? 

Drivers, dear drivers, we always need motivation, tension, it's the complexities that support us and give us a good start to solving problems, and speed too. What will be if they are welcomed us everywhere with open arms? What will be if Helmut Marko stops his loud statements? Motivation will disappear. The supporting like a godfather should be fans and your loved ones primarily, not your bosses. 
That's all.
