Fernando Alonso ends Mercedes talk as he extends Aston Martin deal

Double world champion Alonso, 42, had been linked with Mercedes and Red Bull – as possible replacements for Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen respectively. “I am here to stay,” said Alonso via an Aston Martin press release. The team principal, Mike Krack, said: “Securing Fernando’s long-term future with Aston Martin is fantastic news. Fernando has shown he believes in us, and we believe in him. Fernando is hungry for success, driving better than ever, is fitter than ever, and is completely dedicated to making Aston Martin a competitive force. Alonso took the last of his two world titles in 2006, and has not won a race in more than a decade.
