Fernando Alonso has played down rumours that he’s in discussion with Honda for a move to the japanese for the 2009 season. This is what he said : “Nothing is happening at all. I am not thinking of next year and will not until the end of the season. I am not talking to anyone now at all. I am fully focused on this year’s championship and I am not worried about next year.”
Rubens Barrichello had the rumour mill going at full steam when he told reports : “I think the team is definitely talking to Fernando. I have never been so enthusiastic about my whole situation with the team. I left Ferrari because I didn’t have the freedom to do what I wanted to do. I have that at Honda, but I still have not had the car to perform and I am waiting for that chance.”
Well what Fernando is saying might be true, maybe he’s not talking to anyone now, perhaps the deal is already done, this just could be a smokescreen meant to throw everyone off.
