Fernando Alonso in reflective mood and makes Aston Martin admission

    Aston Martin's Fernando Alonso has openly admitted that Aston Martin will probably be the last team he drives for in F1


    Fernando Alonso will probably not drive for another team in his F1 career after announcing that Aston Martin will be the last stop on his Grand Prix journey.

    Alonso, who sensationally moved to Aston Martin from Alpine during the summer break, enters 2023 as the oldest driver on the F1 grid and enters the twilight of his racing career.

    “I trust this project. I know this is probably the last team I drive for, but I don’t know. I know Lawrence [Stroll] and Lance [Stroll] when he was in the Ferrari academy, which was in 2012,” admitted Alonso to selected media outlets, including Total

    “Now we have this wonderful opportunity to share the team to work together towards an Aston Martin. Hopefully contention for championships in the future.

    “I will be super proud to be part of this organisation if one day, we have an Aston Martin dominating races and championships, and the two drivers are fighting for the championship like Red Bull.

    Alonso hungry for success

    Although it’s unlikely win number 33 will come this year, Alonso, along with the other new Aston Martin recruits, remains motivated for success. This stems from the team’s own win-or-nothing mentality, something which appeals to Alonso. 

    “New, fresh approach for many things, new people joined the team, a lot of talent on the design office, the technical department. Obviously, a new factory is nearly ready,” explained Alonso

    “So everything feels like new energy, and I see people very motivated; a lot of work has been done on this car. I can’t wait for Bahrain, and everyone is very excited about this project.

    “Everyone here is humble and hungry for success. Maybe they need experience fighting for wins regularly or championships or podium every weekend. But they trust in themselves. 

    “They have self-confidence and know they can achieve that. This is very different compared to other teams I joined in the past, where they had success in the past and were in a comfortable position.

    “They were just fourth and were happy with fourth; they were happy with fifth if we were seventh; it was a celebration. Here there are no celebrations until we win. And this is very appealing.”
