Alonso's departure is an open secret in Formula 1 but the team have not yet announced it, nor their decision to replace him with Sebastian Vettel. Di Montezemolo told Italian television: "Fernando is leaving for two reasons. "One, he wants another environment. Two, because he is an age when he cannot wait to win again." Alonso, 33, asked Di Montezemolo in the summer to be released from his contract, after losing faith that Ferrari could produce a winning car in the near future. What next for Alonso? Discuss.
