Fernando Alonso is also interested in obtaining an aeroplane pilot’s licence. Alonso isn’t the first F1 driver to look into getting a pilot’s license in recent months – it emerged last week that Red Bull driver Mark Webber wants a licence due to his “passion” for aircraft.
Ferrari’s Alonso has told formulasantander.com that he also commenced activities to obtain his licence some time ago.
“The pilot’s licence is on hold, I have to study a lot and I have to have available time,” said the Spaniard. “We will see if I can return to it in August, when F1 has a break.”
