Fernando Alonso could become one of sport’s biggest earners if reports in spain prove correct. Spain’s AS newspaper reported this week that the t wo-time World Champion has agreed a t wo-year contract with McLaren that will be the “biggest in Formula 1 history”. The deal is thought to value the local hero at somewhere above US$40M per season. “It has been confirmed to AS that Alonso and McLaren have agreed for the Spaniard to be the star of the British team’s new project with a Honda engine,” the newspaper claimed. “T he agreement is seen as the largest in the history of Formula 1 and will be presented as a multi-year deal. But the Spaniard has the best deal. In principle, the talk is of two years with an option for a third. “A lonso will have a considerably higher salary as both McLaren and Honda make a big effort to win again. But above all, Alonso has managed to get technical guarantees that he has sought in getting a competitive car.” As if to underline Alonso’s future, there were no explicit suggestions from the Ferrari pit wall to Kim Raikkonen late in the Brazilian GP that he move over to allow Alonso by. On a two-stop strategy, the Finn was much slower than his teammate but was not requested to make way. After the race Alonso said he had “zero frustration” with his teammate. The pair finished in sixth and seventh place, respectively. 8 GPWEEK.com // 8 GPWEEK.com // PARTNERS:
