Formula 1: Fernando Alonso insists he will stay at Ferrari

Fernando Alonso has ruled out the possibility of leaving Ferrari despite having another frustrating season at the Italian team and McLaren making their interest in re-signing him public. The Spaniard has won two world titles with Renault before racing for McLaren for a single year. He is still regarded as one of the best drivers in Formula 1 but the Ferrari car certainly didn't help him this year.

"Our season has been frustrating because we had high hopes with this year's new regulations and starting from zero with all the other teams we thought we could have an advantage with all our facilities and input from everybody. But we have found ourselves not in the right position and not competitive," Alonso said. "We are further away from the leaders than during any other season this year, we are sometimes one-and-a-half seconds away from Mercedes."

"It's not my intention at the moment to move, I want to win here and finish the job that we started some years ago and we will see what the future comes," he added. 'There has been a lot of talk since last summer but from my mouth there never came any interest to leave Ferrari or any words saying l would join another team. There was a lot of speculation, which is not disturbing but it created a little bit of tension and stress. Yet you also feel happy and proud that the best teams have an interest in you and say so in public."

Fernando Alonso is 33/1 at Bet365 to win the Italian Grand Prix this weekend.
