Aston Martin Explains Reasoning For Fernando Alonso Signing

Aston Martin has explained the reasoning behind the team’s signing of Fernando Alonso on a long-term deal.

The recently appointed principal Mike Krack believes the Spaniard is the person capable of leading the team moving forward:

"I have witnessed the excitement in the engineering team and throughout the whole organisation at the opportunity to work with Fernando."

“We know that nearly everyone can learn from someone of Fernando's calibre and experience."


"We are confident that he will inspire everyone to lift their game, and that will only enhance the already infectious energy that exists within the team.”

Mike Krack has spoken extremely highly of the exiting Sebastian Vettel but is now ready to support another World Champion in their ambitions for success in the sport.

Aston Martin was swift to acquire the services of Alonso after the announcement of Vettel’s retirement, and will look to prove they are capable of fulfilling the ambitions they have set out:

"We are on a journey to create a winning organisation, and it is clear that Fernando will accelerate our progress and bring us to a performance in which we can take pride.


"We are delighted to have Fernando and Lance as our driver line-up next year - the combination of experience and youth will be incredibly strong and both drivers look forward to competing and working together.”
