Fernando Alonso His contract ends at the end of this season and his future in the Great Circus is unknown. Will he stay in Alpine? Will he go to another team? The answer is in the air. The Asturian is not at all satisfied with the work of the French team and is weighing up other options. Alpine, for its part, is covering its back in case Fernando decides not to renew. They have in the bedroom Oscar PiastriFormula 2 champion, and counts as the first sword with a Stephen Ocon (9th with 30 points in the drivers’ standings this year) who is beating Alonso this season in particular and who has a contract until 2024.
Fernando wants to keep running, but he is not in a position to waste time. At 40 years old, he is looking for a team that guarantees him a competitive single-seater, since his idea is to win again: “I think I can win again, that’s why I keep running. There is always the hope that one year I will have the package and everything together to fight for a championship and I still feel competitive and fast “, she warns in statements to ‘Sky Sports’.
Alonso drops that he does not mind sharing a team with a star as long as he has the possibility of enjoying a competitive car. It is his great priority and right now he is combing the market assessing the options he has: “I think that, in the end, there aren’t many number one or number two drivers on any team right now and the teams need both drivers to work together to improve the car. Especially with the new rules you still learn a lot from every lap you do and you have to work to have a better car, a better package, so we will see what the possibilities are in the coming years“.
Alpine, as has been shown to date, does not meet the expectations of a Fernando who is desperately looking for a team that allows him to compete on equal terms with the rest of the great stars of Formula 1 in order to say goodbye in a big way. We’ll see if he gets it.
