F1 LIVE: Hamilton forces ‘searingly honest’ Mercedes talks, Ferrari engineers hand out CVs | F1 | Sport
Mark Webber has refused to rule out that Fernando Alonso could stay in F1 beyond his current contract.
Alonso initially retired in 2018 but returned to the sport in 2020, showcasing that he still has a lot to offer during a two years spent with Alpine.
The Spaniard then joined Aston Martin earlier this year on a multi-year deal, though Webber has stressed that Alonso may not leave the sport once the contract expires.
He told Motorsport.com’s Spanish edition: “I think when you get older, we all mature in different ways, and we have different priorities in our lives. He’s been in this paddock for 20 years. Naturally, it’s different from when it arrived.
“That’s obvious, but the instinct and the driver, it’s all still there. I think, the traits are there, everything that characterises him is still there, he’s a competitor, he wants to fight people, in a really tenacious and self-rewarding way, and that will never leave Fernando. He has the opportunity to stay longer than these two years, of course. Never rule out that Fernando runs until he is 44 years old.”
