No F1 return ’in short term’ - Alonso
"When I have enough air I will think about returning or not"
Fernando Alonso says he does not want to return to Formula 1 "in the short term".
At the moment, the highly rated Spaniard is preparing for a forthcoming rally-raid event in Morocco.
"I will decide about the Dakar rally based on the next rally in Morocco," Alonso said at the launch of a video game called Grid on which he was a consultant.
But Alonso, 38, says he doesn’t mind that he is so often asked about the possibility of a return to F1.
"I don’t have plans to return in the short term," he answered.
"I decided to leave last year to take a breath after 18 years at the highest level and total dedication, and not much has changed.
"F1 requires 365 days a year of commitment and now I am breathing a little. When I have enough air I will think about returning or not," Alonso said.
