Red Bull Ring making progress (12:00)
Alonso wants to extend Ferrari contract
Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo reports FErnando Alonso is in talks with Ferrari to extend his contract with the team until 2020. After the Singapore Grand Prix Alonso reiterated that he wants to finish his career at Ferrari and it appears he is confident that will happen.
“We are working towards extending my contract. I hope to finish my career at Ferrari.” Alonso says he will sit down with the team to discuss his contract but said the team has indicated they want him to stay and it would be good if that would happen.
Does this mean we may see Alonso and Vettel in the same team after all or is this Alonso making a move to block Vettel’s move to Ferrari?
Red Bull Ring making progress
Work has started to upgrade facilities at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, Austria. This is in anticipation for the Grand Prix that is to be held there in 2014, if all legalities can be sorted out that is.
As can be expected with Ecclestone he made a few ‘requests’ for circuit changes which has led to the grass embankment on the start-finish straight being removed to make way for a covered grandstand. Inside the grandstand there will be a press center that will be able to cater for 500 journalists.
Further plans include extending the pit building by four additional garages.
