Fernando Alonso' s girlfriend is a Formula One journalist. Andrea Schlager works at Austrian ServusTV and revealed on that channel what the two-time F1 world champion's future plans are.

Will Alonso quit after 2024?

According to Schlager, Alonso is extremely likely to call it quits after his current contract. The now 41-year-old Spaniard will be 43 years old when his current contract expires, so it is not all that remarkable for him to call it quits at some point. Nevertheless, you won't hear the Aston Martin driver himself talk about it so easily.

Schlager said at Servus: "He currently has a two-year contract and that will most probably be his last." Alonso fans may yet clutch at a final straw. Indeed, Schlager says Alonso will "most probably" quit after 2024. There is a small chance he will continue. That will no doubt depend on his performance and the speed of his Aston Martin.
