Otmar Szafnauer has hit out at “pure media speculation” about his future, but admits other teams have approached him about leaving Aston Martin. Amid reports of unrest at Aston Martin following the arrival of former McLaren boss Martin Whitmarsh, and suggestions Alpine is set to snap up Szafnauer, the Romanian-American slammed the “spiral of misinformation”. “The rumours are pure media speculation and not based at all on facts,” said the Aston Martin team principal. Szafnauer, 57, has been with the team since its Force India days, and he says he has “no plans to leave”.
