Fernando Alonso He wants to continue in Formula 1 for at least two or three more years. The Asturian pilot says this very clearly, but the truth is that no one knows when his career in the ‘great circus’ will end. But in Alpine, they have already begun to prepare their retreat.

This was explained by Alpine CEO Laurent Rossi in his remarks to the French edition of ‘motorsport’. And although they have Oviedo for the next course, one thing seems very clear: As soon as Fernando Alonso leaves Formula 1, he will join the WEC (World Endurance Championship) with the French brand.especially in the Hypercar category.

“Last year has always been part of the discussion, even when we were discussing the extension for this year,” said Laurent Rossi. “We talk about Fernando being a legend of Formula 1 and also of the Renault group, for us he is the ‘CHAMPION’.”Alpine CEO insisted.

Important date 2024

“The day I made this jump, I was supposed to sit at LMDh (Le Mans Daytona h)., welcome, this is your team. Obviously, that’s part of the negotiation. In fact, we decided (to start this program) with him in the first place,” confirmed the boss of the Enstone-based team.

Everything shows that, therefore, Fernando Alonso will be one of the drivers who will be part of the Alpine LMDh program (two prototypes with a total of six drivers will be entered) and will start in 2024. However, that doesn’t mean the Asturian made it to the WEC that same year, because it hasn’t been decided yet.

On the other hand, it should be noted that He won the 24 Hours of Le Mans with Toyota in 2018 and 2019., also won the WEC with Sébastien Buemi and Kazuki Nakajima. It is a category of motorsports that still has challenges to face and that after this experience, when leaving the ‘big circus’, it always wants to return.
