Double time world champion and current championship leader Fernando Alonso is expecting to end Formula 1 career at Italian squad Ferrari.
The Spaniard made his Ferrari debut in 2010 F1 season, and he admits unclear if he will continue in F1 once his existing contract expire at the end of the 2016 season, but if he think another year or so in the sport then it will be with Maranello squad.
“I finish my contract for 2017, and at the moment I think it is still too early to be sure what my feelings and my motivation will be then,” Alonso told Autosport.
“If I am still motivated and hungry still I would love to continue, and if I do it would only be with Ferrari for sure. If at that time I feel it is time to stop and have a different life it will be a decision I make that year.
“I have been racing for so many years, it is a very demanding life and sport, but I know that one day the time to stop will arrive. We will see when that day comes.”
“Yes. I have a very good relationship with Grosjean, we were team-mates at Renault and after the accident he sent me a SMS,” he said.
“He didn’t calculate the distance and the problems, it was many factors together and he felt so sorry for the accident. I answered ‘no problem.’ We will see each other again in Singapore, it was all fine.
“My engine is fine, no problem or damage, so now we have another fresh engine compared to [my] main rivals. It’s not a big performance gain, but it is always nice from a driveability point of view.”
