Alonso Uncertain About F1 Future
McLaren Renault’s Fernando Alonso says that he is unsure what his plans are for next season and has hinted that if Formula One remains predictable next season than he will not be in the sport.
The double Formula One champion who took his maiden World Endurance Championship race win last weekend on his debut with Toyota at the Spa Francorchamps circuit alongside his Toyota team mate’s Kazuki Nakajima and Sebastien Buemi.
The Spaniard who last won a Grand Prix with Ferrari in Spain in 2013 maintains that he will use the F1 Summer break to make a final decision on his future in Formula One and has confirmed that how he does in the World Endurance Championship will have no impact on his decision.
Alonso also said that the Formula One schedule is very demanding but his main concern about the sport is how predictable it is.
The Spaniard made his Formula One debut at the 2001 Australian Grand Prix with Minardi before moving to Renault in 2002 as their test driver before being promoted to race driver in 2003. The Spaniard won back to back championships with Renault in 2005 and 2006 before moving to McLaren in 2007.
Alonso moved back to Renault in 2008, spending two years with the Enstone outfit before moving to Ferrari in 2010, replacing Kimi Raikkonen. The Spaniard moved back to McLaren in 2015.
