Alonso will be 40 when a seat in Mclaren "can" be available. And yes, age is important since human body is not like fine wine, which would get better with age. He can have better experience, but not the reflexes and stamina.
Not to mention his other problems - about which i am not allowed to speak off, since some of his diehard fans would condemn me of being a hater.
He'd be an option but so would the Hulk. Remember he, at the very least, matched Carlos at Renault. The Hulk would also come "on the cheap".
Didn’t Hulk price himself out of a move to Haas? I don’t think it’s about if McLaren will be able to afford him, but rather whether they think he’s worth what he’s asking for.
Steiner, who said he and team owner Gene Haas were "very aligned" on the decision, denied suggestions that the two drivers' respective salaries played a part, as he believes Hulkenberg could've been available on an "acceptable" deal.
He made it clear, however, that Hulkenberg had not been approached with any formal offer.
"In the end, I want to clarify that - we decided to take Romain but I don't know if Nico would've come.
"We spoke but we never made a formal offer. So I don't know if he would've accepted or not, that you need to ask him."
