Fernando Alonso and his retirement is a hot topic on the F1 scene. The Spaniard looks like he is in his best days, and many believe that Alonso is experiencing a new youth. However, there are also those who believe that Alonso will leave F1 at the end of this season.

In an interview with the media, this great F1 driver revealed how he feels and compared his career now and then. ‘I like being competitive, I like being fast and I hate to lose. So you see it’s not very hard to motivate me once I’m inside the car.

Maybe now I’m a bit weaker than when I was 20 years old, but when you age you know your body way better. You know which training to do, when you feel tired, what things to avoid, and that is how you make up for it. You make up for strength with wisdom.

For now no, [I am not thinking of retirement]. I know I’m in the closing side of my career, but for now, I don’t see it. I don’t have a date to put an end to my career.’ Alonso began this season in an incredible manner, but his performance dipped in the latter part of the season.

Aston Martin currently doesn't have a clear objective to contend for. ‘Honestly, we are not fighting for anything. We will learn, even if we have to start from the pitlane, and you know that is more useful than just spending the weekend,’ Despite Aston Martin's decline, Alonso remains content with this season, especially considering they are ahead of several strong competitors.

‘In the constructors’ championship, we are locked in in the position we are. In the driver’s championship, we will lose a couple of places. But I mean, it is incredible that we are in front of Ferraris, or George [Russell] or Lando [Norris] or whatever, but we will lose those positions.

They have a very fast car. And yet, let’s see what we can do.’ Source: Metro
