F1 Italian Grand Prix: Not my intention to move, says Alonso

Two-time F1 World Champion Fernando Alonso repeats intention to remain at Ferrari and his desire “to win here and finish the job we started some years ago”
Fernando Alonso says it is “not his intention to move” from Ferrari and that he wants to “finish the job”.

Paddock gossip has linked the Spaniard with a return to McLaren after five years of failure at the Scuderia - although he did finish runner-up in 2010, 2012 and 2013, only narrowly missing out in two of those three campaigns.

However, despite the Maranello-based team's inability to give him a decent car to challenge this year – and last – he has reiterated for the umpteenth time that remains committed to the 'Prancing Horse'.

“There has been a lot of talk since last summer but from my mouth there never came any interest to leave Ferrari or any words saying l would join another team,” Alonso told Sky Sports News in the countdown to this weekend's Italian Grand Prix at Monza, Ferrari's home race.

“There was a lot of speculation, which is not disturbing but it is hard and it created a little bit of tension and stress.

“But also you feel happy and proud that the best teams have an interest in you and they say it publicly.

“However it's not my intention at the moment to move. I want to win here and finish the job that we started some years ago,” he underlined.

JohnMarston: I always wanted to see him in a Newey designed car. He'd probably have a few more titles to his name.
TBH there are a number of drivers on the grid who could have been multi champions in a Newey car. Alonso had a better chance than the rest in 2010 and failed to pass the Vyborg rocket in the last race.
