Now, here’s the kicker. Aston Martin might need not just one, but maybe two drivers for 2025. Why? Well, it’s all up in the air with Lance Stroll. Mike Krack, the big boss over at Silverstone, has his eyes on someone. And, drumroll… It’s Alonso. Shocked? Didn’t think so.

So, Krack spills the beans, “The silly season’s kicked off way early,” he chuckles to the press, GPblog included. “But hey, we’re all about Fernando. Our bond? Solid. It’s like, trust and openness level 100. We’d be stoked to have him stick around till 2025 or even longer.”

Alonso’s feeling pumped, ready to race at the top of his game. He’s mulling over his future, pondering if F1’s still his playground or if it’s time to switch gears to another racing class. Only time will tell, but one thing’s for sure – the speculation’s just getting started.
