Fernando Alonso says his future plans will seem “obvious” in retrospect when they are finally revealed.
But Alonso said those wanting to know where he will be next year will need to “be patient and wait a little bit”.
“Obviously I cannot say anything until everything is completely done,” he told reporters in Sochi, “but it’s good, and I will do the best for my future and the best of the future of Ferrari as well because it’s the team that I love.”
“When you know it, you will say ‘it was so obvious that you will do that’,” he added, but stopped short of confirming he will be in F1 next year.
Alonso said his future has been “set in my mind for some months and now we are finalising everything so it’s not a big thing”.
“And then for the remaining races is just trying to maximise what we have. I think here, this weekend, probably we didn’t extract the maximum from the car because we were very close to the podium in some races and we were not close here so we need to do better next time.”
