Fernando Alonso explained last week that “The Plan was to return to Formula 1” in a direct on his Instagram in relation to his recent signing by Aston Martin for the next two seasons. The Spaniard also certified the duration of his contract since Aston Martin first spoke of a multi-year contract.

The signing of the Spaniard by Aston Martin continues to bring reactions. The last one has been an old acquaintance of the grill, Juan Pablo Montoya. The former Formula 1 driver believes that the signing of the Spaniard by Aston Martin is a “good opportunity”, although the results for now are not being good in the green team. But if he sees Aston Martin as a competitive team in the long term: “I think Aston Martin has a chance to win in the long term.”

“It’s tough, but remember, with F1, if they run poorly this year, it doesn’t mean they’re going to run poorly the next two years,” Montoya told Vegasinsider. The Colombian also welcomes joining a Mercedes-powered team as they have been fast throughout the hybrid era and this year they are the most reliable on the grid. “Mercedes have always had good engines, and Aston has had decent cars. If they can put it all together, they have the means and the budget, and everything to achieve it”, closes the former F1 driver.
