Fernando Alonso will be in the Aston Martin cockpit from next season. Now, for the first time, the Spaniard is expressing his motivation for changing teams.

Vettel successor: Fernando Alonso speaks on “RTL” for the first time about how Aston Martin convinced him to change. “They told me about their project, presented all the people and the facilities. It was a conversation for ten minutes, then I was convinced,” says the Spaniard.

Short, compact, clear

Conversations dragged on: At his current Alpine racing team, “everything revolved around Piastri, Piastri, Piastri” (Oscar Piastri). “Everything took longer than expected. I thought my move was a win-win situation,” emphasizes Alonso.
