Fernando Alonso: “I have three more years with Ferrari…”

Fernando Alonso has done his best to put an end to speculation about a possible return to McLaren.

The Singapore paddock was buzzing today with suggestions that Alonso could return to the team after Martin Whitmarsh admitted that he would be happy to have the Spaniard back, despite the acrimonious end to his previous stint there  in 2007.

“Not really,” he said when asked if McLaren had any appeal. “I repeat more or less every weekend, I keep repeating, I don’t know why, that I love Ferrari and I will stay in Ferrari until the end.”

However he also hinted that things had changed at McLaren, and had a dig at Ron Dennis, who is no longer involved in the day-to-day running of the team.

“It is nice to hear comments from all the teams – all the team principals – every year, saying they respect my job and my personality. Especially McLaren, there were so many rumours that we had a lot of problems that year.

“I always say that I had no problems with anyone, it was just the philosophy of the team, or especially one man in the team, that is not really there. It’s good to have these comments, but there’s no intention. I have three more years with Ferrari and I hope many more to come, if we can extend the contract, and that will be my hope.”

    Fernando stated that Ferrari’s Singapore performance was “sad”. More of those comments will have Luca pushing him out the door 5 minutes after the last race of the season.

    I find it ironic now that Luca has Kimi, Kimi comes up lame. Does anyone know if his back problem could develop into a long term problem that may end his racing career?
