Fernando Alonso has signed a contract to stay with Ferrari till 2016. The Spaniard says that this is the team with which he would like to end his F1 career with. Ahem, well, you may like to stay in the Scarlet red machine as much as you want dear Alonso, but the day your position slides on the grid, the legendary team management won’t think twice before showing you the exit door – so you better stay tight. It would be good for you if you remember once Kimi Raikonnen who was driven out once.
The man is extremely talented though, and we wish him all the luck! An official press release from Ferrari follows
Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro announces that it has renewed its technical and racing agreement with the driver Fernando Alonso up to the end of the 2016 season.
“It is a great pleasure to have renewed our agreement with a driver who has always demonstrated a winning mentality even in the most difficult circumstances, commented President Luca di Montezemolo. “Fernando has all the required qualities, both technically and personally to play a leading role in the history of Ferrari and I hope he will be enriching it with further wins very soon.”
“I am very happy to have reached this agreement, said Fernando Alonso. “I immediately felt comfortable within Ferrari and now it feels to me like a second family. I have the utmost faith in the men and women who work in Maranello and in those who lead them: it is therefore natural for me to decide to extend my relationship in the long term like this, with a team at which I will no doubt end my Formula 1 career one day.”
