Alonso to stick with Ferrari despite let downs

Fernando Alonso seems to have had enough of Ferrari supplying him with poor cars.

Having joined the Italian outfit in 2010, the double world champion has failed to add another title after Red Bull swept the last three seasons with Sebastian Vettel.

Last year, Alonso came close to his third crown but Red Bull’s progress in the latter half of the season left him with nothing to celebrate at the end of the campaign.

Former Formula 1 driver David Coulthard wrote in his column on the BBC website that Alonso has been “putting in world championship-level performances” all the time but has been repeatedly let down by his team and the car.

“If this continues for that much longer, you have to wonder how much longer Alonso can stay at Ferrari,” the Scot wondered. “If Ferrari cannot get it together soon he is going to have think about his future.”

Alonso’s manager, Luis Garcia Abad, said it was nonsense that the driver would consider quitting the team, after it was suggested that his sponsors weren’t getting the yields they hoped for.

"Sponsors get the return even without Alonso winning," Abad was quoted saying by DPA defending his driver’s career at Ferrari, which is contracted till 2016.
