While some doubt his chances, Alonso remains undaunted, holding onto the hope that he can claim his third championship title. So, does Fernando Alonso believe he can be a three-time world champion? Let's find out.

He stated, “Whether it’s 1% or 10%: I’ll keep going as long as I believe we have a chance. It’s unrealistic to expect Aston Martin to close the gap any time soon. The important thing is to lay solid foundations and do a better job than those around us.”
Fernando Alonso is known for his ability to achieve the impossible in F1. He has surprised many by challenging for race wins and achieving unlikely results. Red Bull boss Christian Horner once stated that the only real competition he felt was from Alonso.
