The double world champion, Fernando Alonso has not had a very satisfying season this time around for his team Ferrari. He has failed to win any of the major races although the expectations from him were sky high. Somehow he has not been able to cope up with the team and lead them to victory. Numerous technical and personal difficulties have led to his undoing. The last race at Suzuka did not bring forth any good news for the driver either. He seemed to be out of sorts and lacked the exuberance and confidence that is so characteristic of him. The Ferrari team had earlier notified him that they are planning for a change in their ranks in the next season. Fernando Alonso himself seemed keen on moving out as well and he was considering a deal with McLaren who is another super power that has failed to deliver the goods this season.
There has been some ongoing dispute about the length of the contract that Alonso is going to sign with McLaren. He might be considering another move to Mercedes at the end of 2015 season and he has kept his intentions quite clear. His one year stint promises to be a good one for the driver as well as the team. Ferrari on the other hand will be signing up Sebastian Vettel from Red Bull Racing as a replacement for Fernando Alonso. A number of rumors are doing the rounds but the contracts have not yet been prepared or signed for the next season. With the present season coming to an end, each of the teams are looking forward to strengthen their position in the upcoming season. The plans for the new year are in full flow and this is no different for Alonso himself.
