The Spanish driver does not rule out continuing to compete in F1 in 2026
By 2026, F1 will take a very important turn after some changes in the regulations and new engine manufacturers and new teams will also enter the motorsport championship. In this way, the teams will begin to plan their future and Fernando Alonso with Aston Martin they will meet their new allyHonda.
Thus, Honda will be Aston Martin’s engine supplier from 2026 and he will leave the Red Bull team, the most successful at the moment, to join Fernando Alonso. However, it should be remembered that the Asturian pilot ends his contract in the 2024 season with the British.
Honda’s arrival at Aston Martin puts Fernando Alonso in a very bad mood
Alonso has not ruled out that when there is a change of engines he will continue to race in F1. He is now 41 years old and when Honda is Aston Martin’s engine supplier he will be 44: “It is true that in 2026 there is another change in regulations with the new engines and this is another temptation“.
However, as everyone knows, Honda does not get along very well with Fernando Alonso. The Japanese brand was constantly criticized and very attacked by Alonso when the Asturian pilot was in McLaren. The engine was not working and was very unreliable. That is why the Spanish pilot and Honda are enemies.
The Japanese brand has decided to bet on Yuki Tsunoda
And in this sense Koji Watanabe, president of Honda Racing Corporation, has already dropped which would be his favorite driver to occupy one of the Aston Martin seats in 2026. Since they are Japanese, his bet would be Yuki Tsunoda, currently an Alpha Tauri pilot. News that surprised many.
“Tsunoda is originally from our school and in Formula 1 he is doing very well. We are very happy to see him succeedWatanabe said. Thus, Honda is betting on Tsunoda so that he will be Lance Stroll’s partner at Aston Martin in 2026, that he is the son of the president and has the seat secured.
