Fernando Alonso“This situation is very worrying.” Double world Champion Fernando Alonso, following the recent war between the teams and the FIA over next year’s budget cap, has stated that he fears for his and F1′s future.

“I tried to switch off and concentrate on this business. Here, when I am in Monaco, I will be 100% focused on the Grand Prix, with the weekend. But it is true that last week when I was at home it was impossible to switch off because I don’t know if this will be my last time in Monaco,” the Spaniard told Autosport.

“If the big teams and the big manufacturers leave F1 then I don’t want to race with small teams, because it is not any more F1 and there are many other categories,” he explained.

“For me, it is strange that no one sat down and thought how we are damaging the sport, how much damage the sport has had in the last two months. To have those three or four new teams and losing seven of the big manufacturers I cannot understand – and not losing only seven manufacturers but losing the 10 best drivers in the world. It becomes no more interesting, F1,” he added.
