Since the GP of Mexico, rumors have circulated that Fernando Alonso and Sergio Perez will switch racing seats before the 2024 season. However, the Aston Martin driver is strongly opposed to these rumors and is ready to fight back.
This rumor was first raised by Spanish Formula 1 journalist Antonio Lobato, contradicting Christian Horner’s previous statements that Sergio Perez will continue with the team next season, regardless of his championship position.
Alonso dismisses these rumors, stating that rumors have always been a part of the sport and that he does not appreciate these games people play to gain attention and followers by spreading false information.
Furthermore, Alonso emphasizes his commitment to Aston Martin, where he has a multi-year contract. He believes that those spreading these rumors are just looking for sensation and questions his loyalty, which he finds displeasing.
The Spanish driver concludes by stating that there will be consequences for these actions, indicating that he will take action against those responsible for spreading these rumors.
When asked what these consequences would be, a press representative from Aston Martin intervened before Alonso could provide an answer.
