The now ex-pilot Alpine, can only think of one thing for next season: to go for a third world title. At ease in a single-seater that he was able to drive for the first time during the end-of-season tests in Abu Dhabithe replacement for Sebastian Vettel gives himself the right to dream.

“We have to lay the foundations”
Fernando Alonso first explained the reason why he wanted to stay in F1 despite his age. ” What I feel inside is more important. And even if I score good points and finish quite well in the standings despite my 60 points lost because of reliability, maybe I didn’t have the best feelings because I have a new project. I continue in F1 only because I think we will have a chance. Closing the whole gap next year is unrealistic, but we have to lay the groundwork for future cars and work better than the people around us. “he confessed in remarks relayed by Nextgen-Auto.
A third title, Alonso believes in it!
Although he did not sign in favor of the behemoths Red Bull, Mercedes Where Ferrari, Fernando Alonso displays the enormous objective of gleaning a third title of world champion. ” It’s a very competitive environment and to become a champion you have to deliver something special. I am ready to do something special from my side and I expect the same from them. At the end of the day, winning the championship is what motivates me every day, so I still believe that the third title will be possible one day. Maybe not next year, but who knows in the future. With this Aston Martin project there are other things that appeal to me – trying to build the team not from scratch but after this year they hope to be much better in the next seasons. They have a lot of new people in the team, great talent, new facilities, so it looks like I’m joining them when we can do something together and become world champion one day he blurted out.
