Fernando Alonso has spoken to the media for the first time since confirming his move from Alpine to Aston Martin next season, answering a number of questions about how the deal worked out.

He will move from a team currently fighting for fourth place in the Constructors’ Championship to a team ranked ninth, Alonso said. No one has a crystal ball to guess the future. At the same time, in Formula 1 and other sports, you either win or you lose. 4th place, 9th place, 13th place, it doesn’t matter.

“Within the possibilities we had in mind for next year, we felt that this was the right thing to do and that the project has some elements for the future, usually synonymous with success in Formula 1. If you invest, you get the best talent.Let’s shorten that time as much as possible and see if we can make Aston Martin number one as soon as possible.”
