first_imgFernando Alonso has been having a tough year in Formula 1. It is bad enough that he could not extract the best out of Ferrari in the four years he was at the team, a feat Sebastian Vettel did so in just one year. Now the Spanish double world champion is having a torrid year at Mclaren.There is news that he could take a sabbatical in 2016 or even race in the World Endurance Championship. But that may not be all.Pictures have surfaced of Alonso taming the Honda RC213V, the same race bike that Marc Marquez raced in 2015.But before you get all excited, you should know that it was all part of a program organised by Honda Japan as part of its annual end of season ‘Thanks Day’ at the Motegi race circuit. Alonso took on Marquez’s race bike, while Marquez straddled up to tame Honda’s new NSX Concept GT.Also at the program was Indy Car winner Takuma Sato to drive Honda’s 1968 RA301 F1 car.Alonso also drove Honda’s 1991 MP4/6, the same car driven by Ayrton Senna and Gerhard Berger.There is no official video out yet, but the video below shows Alonso doing a great job on two wheels. –Ads–last_img read more
