Dr Helmut Marko is bitter because he was turned down “several times”, Fernando Alonso has claimed.
Marko claimed that while world champion Sebastian Vettel is fully focused, Alonso is too “busy with politics and funny comments”.
Alonso retorted: “Some (people) say they don’t read them (Alonso’s comments), don’t hear them and don’t see them, before adding that they are not influenced by them — so clearly they do read them, maybe at night.”
Now, the feisty 31-year-old Ferrari driver has hinted Marko is bitter because of how many times he rejected Red Bull’s interest in his highly-rated services.
“After hearing ‘no’, it always hurts a little more each time,” Alonso is quoted by Brazil’s Totalrace.
