Fernando Alonso has ended all speculations around his F1 future after re-signing with Aston Martin beyond the 2024 season.

Amid link-ups with several teams and his own unclear mind about continuing in F1, Alonso has put end to all of these speculations by re-signing with Aston Martin beyond the 2024 season. The tenure of his new deal has not been made clear but it is a multi-year one.

In fact, the press release just carried, ‘I am here to stay’, message which was followed by a statement from team boss Mike Krack. Ever since the announcement of Lewis Hamilton joining Ferrari, Alonso was heavily linked with his seat for 2025.

There were also rumours about potential Red Bull move as Alonso insisted his first priority to be Aston Martin if he wishes to remain in F1. He wanted to come to a decision before summer and has done so way early, so that there are no questions about it.

Aston Martin thereby will have the same line-up of Alonso and Lance Stroll for the foreseeable future. It keeps the seats at Mercedes and Red Bull an eye-watering prospect, while Audi also readies itself for 2026 bid by signing at least one in 2025.

The side news to Alonso’s announcement is his upcoming re-union with Honda in 2026 when Aston Martin partners with the Japanese manufacturer in the new era. The two have had a strained relation the last time, but it seems it is all in the past.


“Securing Fernando’s long-term future with Aston Martin Aramco is fantastic news,” said Krack. “We have built a strong working relationship over the last 18 months and we share the same determination to see this project succeed. We have been in constant dialogue over the last few months and Fernando has been true to his word: when he decided he wanted to continue racing, he talked to us first.

“Fernando has shown he believes in us, and we believe in him. Fernando is hungry for success, driving better than ever, is fitter than ever, and is completely dedicated to making Aston Martin Aramco a competitive force. This multi-year agreement with Fernando takes us into 2026 when we begin our works power unit partnership with Honda. We look forward to creating more incredible memories and achieving further success together.”
