There is Fernando Alonso for a while: "My plan is to continue two or three more years"

Fernando Alonso has not returned to Formula 1 for a walk. In the last race in Qatar he achieved his first podium since returning to racing and that achievement has rekindled his inner fire. The Asturian does not lose sight of his true goal, to aspire to the third world title, and at 40 years of age he does not set deadlines to attempt the assault on a throne that he already occupied in 2005 and 2006. There is Fernando Alonso for a while. This has been reaffirmed in statements to the official F1 podcast.

“I will remain in F1 beyond 2022 even if the Alpine car is not that good. My plan is to stay at least two or three more years, ”said Fernando Alonso , more ambitious than ever. “I am looking forward to my third world title and to achieve it I will do what is in my power and, even more, in the coming years,” he said.

This declaration of intent comes after last weekend he achieved the 98th podium of his F1 career and ended a seven-year streak away from the drawer. It was the first stone on which Fernando Alonso wants to build his return to the top. Although he wants to make it clear that he is not “desperate” to win another title, he is aware of what he could convey to his younger fans if he green old laurels.

“It doesn’t matter if you are 19 or if you are 42 or 43, it is a way of life and a total dedication to sport. That will probably be the most important thing if I win the third world title – that kind of legacy and the message for future generations. It would mean a lot after I finished my career in Formula 1 : how to always go to the limit, always try to find excellence in the things you do and have a very high discipline to do them, “he reflected.

The Formula 1 World Championship still has two races left in Saudi Arabia and Abu Dhabi to conclude. With the great unknown of the champion resolved, be it Max Verstappen or Lewis Hamilton , the competition will plunge into the unknown next winter, with a revolutionary rule change that can completely shake the current ‘status quo’. Fernando Alonso knows it and is already licking his lips.
