The ‘beyond driving’ plans of Aston Martin’s Fernando Alonso

Although Fernando Alonso has yet to make a racing debut for Aston Martin, the squad is already considering plans to retain the Spaniard once he decides to stop racing.


When Fernando Alonso decides to retire from motorsport, Aston Martin Team Principal Mike Krack suggests he may be placed for a long-term position with the team in a non-driving responsibility.

When it was revealed that Alonso would replace Sebastian Vettel at Aston Martin on a multi-year contract at the end of 2022, he sparked controversy earlier this year. The announcement came shortly after the Hungarian Grand Prix.

Alonso, who is 41, is the eldest racer in Formula One by about 4 years, but Krack praised the Spaniard for his achievement during his first formal outing for Aston Martin at the Abu Dhabi post-season test in 2022.

Krack informed the media, including RacingNews365.com, “We have already had some very good conversations with him.

“This, in my opinion, can go beyond driving. Fernando joining us as being a core part of the team, and we have to see how this is going to develop.

“But I think he can have a big role to play in the future of the team.”

Will Alonso imitate Schumacher’s action?

If Alonso decides to join Aston Martin once his latest contract expires in a managerial or advisory capacity, the Spaniard will follow in Michael Schumacher’s footsteps after his first departure from Formula One in 2006.

Later, the German worked as Ferrari’s advisor and helped with the squad’s development program, concentrating on checking electronics and tires.

After Felipe Massa suffered a serious injury during the Hungarian Grand Prix weekend, Schumacher was then called up to race for the Scuderia midway through 2009. However, he was required to postpone his intended comeback because he had not completely recovered from a neck injury suffered in a motorbike accident earlier in the year.
