All this coincided with the arrival of new regulations that will come into force next year, and from 2022 a new era of F1 will come into force. Therefore, the Spanish driver wants to stay on the grid as long as possible - at least until 2023.
"Oh, yes, I will be, even if the car is not good. My plan is to stay for at least another two or three years, ”admitted Alonso in the official Formula 1 podcast, Beyond the grid.
The two-time champion makes it clear that he wants to win a third title in Formula 1.

He also sees this realization as important in terms of legacy. "It would mean a lot in terms of heritage when my time in Formula 1 is over, how to always push to the limit, how to find excellence in the things you do, have high discipline in how you race and how you approach racing," he assures.
"It's not that I'm desperate about it, and it will change my whole path or my way of looking at sports. As I said, I'm a competitive person - in everything I do, "he explains. "It doesn't matter if you are 19, 42, or 43, it is a way of life and a complete commitment to sports.
That would probably be the most important thing if I won the third title, that legacy and the message for future generations, "Alonso concluded.
