Szafnauer reacts to rumours of transfer to Alpine: 'Sensationalised'

Rumours have been going around all week that Aston Martin team principal Otmar Szafnauer would be making a surprising move to the Alpine team. Today there was an update that the deal was already done. Szafnauer himself now responds to the rumors.

The Aston Martin team boss denies all rumours. Earlier today spokesmen for Aston Martin and Alpine declined to comment on the rumours. According to Aston Martin, it was even"speculative conjecture". Szafnauer now confirms this himself on his Instagram.

Szafnauer statement

"My Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One Team communications staff have correctly issued a spokesperson's statement to the effect that rumours linking me to the Alpine F1 Team are merely "speculative conjecture" and that they would not, therefore, comment further", the team boss begins in his statement.

"However, since the rumours have now been sensationalised on certain websites, creating a spiral of misinformation, I have taken the decision proactively to confirm hereby that the rumours are pure media speculation and not based on facts", he concludes.
