Fernando Alonso has once again dodged questions about his future in motorsport by saying that making a decision is not his priority at this moment in time.
However, he did go on to say that he has a “very ambitious plan” for his future in racing, and that all of the events over the past few months have been going in the right direction.
Alonso is widely expected to leave Ferrari at the end of the season to make way for Sebastian Vettel, who will walk out on Red Bull at the end of the year.
However, with neither camp making any kind of official announcement, Alonso’s future continues to be the talk of the paddock.
In his eyes though, this is secondary to the work that is going on at Ferrari towards the end of the 2014 season.
“I think the first priority at the moment is to work on-track and a lot of things that can happen on the track in the next few races and believe in good results because we’re fighting in the constructors’ championship,” Alonso explained in Austin on Thursday. “There is a massive push from the engineers, from the mechanics, everyone in the team to deliver good results.
“This is the first priority at the moment. My own future is, I think, very low priority at the moment. I know there there are some expectations and some rumors around. That’s normal.”
Alonso has hinted at having a plan in the past, saying that it would be “so obvious”. He has been linked with a move back to McLaren for 2015, but he has not yet confirmed whether a return to Woking is on the cards.
“As I said, I have a very ambitious plan in my head for my future,” Alonso said. “I think that this is the best thing for Ferrari as well. If that happens, people will be very, very excited, as I am.
“I’m extremely happy and all the things in the past three, four months follow the plan that I have.”
