Far from confirming his F1 whereabouts for 2014, Fernando Alonso's mysterious Twitter post appears to have more to do with another sport entirely...

I doubt that he will be leaving Formula1 for cycling in 2014. He will drive a F1 car at least for two other seasons. This rumours sounds to me like the link between Valentino Rossi driving for Ferrari in 2010. Alonso is just supporting the Euskadi team financially and with his sportmanship image. Maybe he will get more involved in the near future but I think he still will be in Formula 1.

Nice move by Alonso - mind you, he'd get murdered if he tried to race against pro cyclists. They are on another plane compared to other pro sportsmen. Schumacher used to train with Tony Rominger in Switzerland - now he (MS) was fit, but on the alpine climbs when he was "on the rivet", Rominger just rode away up the mountain. Leave the drug issue aside - it is hopefully moving into the past, in cycling - maybe more so than other sports. As a sometime racer (got my BC race license), it's good to see some faith being shown in our sport.
