Alpine will consider re-signing Alonso

Alpine boss Otmar Szafnauer says the Renault-owned team will “consider” re-signing Fernando Alonso for 2023. “I can imagine many things,” team boss Szafnauer told El Mundo Deportivo newspaper when asked about Alonso’s future at Alpine. “He is a great competitor and he is very integrated and happy with the team. “But these kinds of decisions are made a little bit later in the year for all the teams,” said Szafnauer. He said he “understands” why Alonso has only scored 2 points so far in 2022 compared to 24 points for his younger French teammate Esteban Ocon. “It’s not Fernando’s fault,” said Szafnauer, adding that Alonso is also “intelligent” enough to know that Alpine is not quite ready to win races.
