Fernando Alonso signs contract extension to remain at Ferrari

Formula One’s Fernando Alonso has shown his loyalty to Ferrari and signed a new long term extension to his contract meaning he will remain with the Italians until at least 2016.

Whilst the Spaniard has not had the best of starts with the current car, there remains enough races for 29 year old to get back in touch with current points leader Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull.

Alonso was extremely pleased with the new deal stating.

“I am very happy to have reached this agreement, I immediately felt comfortable within Ferrari and now it feels to me like a second family.”
