Alonso mind made up on future

Alonso mind made up on future
Eurosport - Tue, 30 Oct 15:16:00 2007
Unsettled McLaren driver Fernando Alonso has decided what he wants to do next season - but does not know if his wishes will come to fruition.

The Spaniard said he is still waiting on news about whether he will honour his McLaren contract next year or switch to a rival team.

"I know what I want to do, but I do not know if it will be possible," he said.

Alonso, 26 - who spent an acrimonious season at McLaren in 2007 due to his rivalry with team-mate Lewis Hamilton - is rumoured to be negotiating with Williams on a single-year contract.

Meanwhile Renault, the team where he won world titles in 2005 and 2006, is pushing for a three-year deal.

That team's boss Flavio Briatore is reported to have travelled to Brazil recently for talks with a major potential Hispanic sponsor who could help bankroll Alonso's return to the team.

"The options are open and everything is to be negotiated," Alonso said.

"I have an idea, a desire, about what I want to do. We will have to wait and find out."

Ferrari President Luca di Montezemolo, meanwhile, continued to downplay suggestions that Alonso could be part of the Italian team's plans for the future.

Asked about Alonso, Montezemolo said: "I do not have the faintest idea and I am certainly not going to comment."

Perhaps he can go to Ferrari and take a few pages of technical stuff from Mclaren with him.
