Aston Martin 'not thinking about' Alonso future

Two-time F1 World Champion Alonso has indicated a desire to remain an Aston Martin driver.

Aston Martin Team Principal Mike Krack has insisted there has been no energy put into planning Fernando Alonso's future with the team. Two-time F1 World Champion Alonso joined the Silverstone-based outfit in the winter to replace Sebastian Vettel after the German retired from competition. The partnership has so far yielded promising results, with Alonso securing five podiums in the opening five races to see Aston Martin take third in the Constructors' standings, behind only runaway leader Red Bull and Mercedes. Alonso has indicated a desire to remain with Aston Martin for years to come, with the enticing prospect of a works deal with Honda posing no threat to the alliance despite previous disputes between driver and engine manufacturer.

Desire to be at the front

Responding to Alonso's comments, Krack told media, including RacingNews365.com : "It's nice to hear that, that he has said that - several years, we would be happy with that. "I think the main thing, and this is one of the big qualities, is the desire to be at front, the motivation and I think this is fully on with Fernando. "We don't think so much about that, to be honest. We take it race by race, and we try to do well every race. It's nice to hear that, but we haven't thought too much about it yet. Let's make it happen."
