Fernando Alonso to replace Sebastian Vettel at Aston Martin from 2023

Sebastian Vettel, who declared his retirement last week, will be succeeded by the 41-year-old Spaniard. The deal Alonso had with Alpine was set to expire this year. Alonso has a multi-year contract with Aston Martin, the company announced on Monday.

Alonso described the chance with Aston Martin as “a tremendously intriguing prospect for me” because “no one in Formula One today is exhibiting a stronger vision and absolute commitment to winning.” “I still have the desire and the aspiration to battle to be at the front, and I want to be a part of a team that is dedicated to growing.” 

As he enters his 20th F1 season, Alonso will be a veteran. In 2005 and 2006, he achieved success with Renault. In 2019 and 2020, he took two years off from racing to compete in other series, including runs in the Indianapolis 500.

When given the chance to work with Fernando, Aston Martin team principal Mike Krack observed “excitement among the engineering team and throughout the entire business.” “We are aware that someone with Fernando’s calibre and experience can teach practically anyone something. He’ll motivate everyone to play their best, we’re sure of it. In the 10-team constructors’ rankings this season, Aston Martin is only ranked ninth, with Lance Stroll, owner Lawrence Stroll’s son, serving as the team’s other driver.

We all understand that there is a lot of work to be done in order to advance, and that we must put all of our efforts into cooperating to achieve performance, Alonso mentioned that I am inspired to continue to appreciate and be committed to the sport by the passion and desire to perform that I have seen. I want to win again in this sport, so I must seize the chances that feel appropriate to me.

In the constructors’ race, Alpine is now in fourth place after making improvements in prior seasons. Alonso is now ranked 10th out of 20 drivers. After leaving the series for a two-year sabbatical, he returned to Alpine in 2021.
