Alonso drops a bombshell: Ferrari might be best option.
In the seemingly never ending saga around his future employment, Nando dropped a bomb at Interlagos but, curiously, it was for the most part ignored by British media and only reported by Spanish and Italian publications.
"I have the option to go to any team i want for the final years of my career. I have to evaluate what is the best option for me, if to renew with Ferrari for the long term, something we have been discussing all year"
Boom... except with the UK crowd, who generally despise Alonso and will certainly have little patience with being trolled like this by the Spaniard.
UK source while we can report (and a number of photographs seemed to confirm) that our own CG saw Alonso and Mattiacci laughing and joking with each other in the paddock in Austin.
"From the outside it's true that the situation is not so clear, everyone thinks that Mercedes, the team that is dominating at the moment, will dominate next year. We probably though the same last year of Red Bull when they won nine races in a row and then this year they managed only five laps in winter testing. You never know how things will change from year to year, you have to study the projects, evaluate the prospects and follow a direction. At this moment my priority is Ferrari, because we are racing here with 75 people who are working on two cars to achieve the best result possible."
What will happen? We think Alonso is the perfect driver for Ferrari and even a pairing of Alonso and Vettel would be epic and would make the pairing of Hamilton and Rosberg seem bland. The resurgence of the Ferrari will be the storyline of the next few years in F1, maybe Fernando has figured it out?
As usual, leave your take below.
