Alonso’s first year with the McLaren-Honda did not go well as the team struggled to field a competitive car and Alonso finished 17th in the final F1 standings. It was a long fall for a driver who is used to competing at the front of the grid and has won two championships. The Spaniard is well compensated at McLaren with a three-year deal worth more than $30 million annually. His 32 career wins ranks sixth all-time among F1 drivers.
