Fernando Alonso announced his retirement from Formula 1 at the end of this season. The Spanish pilot wants to head into new adventures and look for challenges there.
Alonso, who was driving under the Woking flag during the last four years, didn’t specify to which championship he will be moving. Most rumours suggest that it’s going to be Indycar, the open-wheel racing in North America.
“I made this decision some months ago and it was a firm one. Nevertheless, I would like to sincerely thank Chase Carey and Liberty Media for the efforts made to change my mind and everyone who has contacted me during this time”
“I would also like to thank my former teams, team-mates, competitors, colleagues, partners, hournalists and everyone I have worked with in my F1 career. And, especially my fans all over the wrodl. I am quite sure our paths will cross again in the future.”
