Alonso wants Mercedes or Ferrari seat says Briatore
http://www.grandprix.com/ns/ns36814.html

Fernando Alonso has targeted a move into one of F1's two top teams for 2018.

That is the claim of Flavio Briatore, who still oversees the management
of the Spaniard's career as he seeks a potential move away from
McLaren-Honda.

"Fernando must go to Mercedes or Ferrari," he told Auto Motor und Sport.

"Renault is still a good distance from being a top team."

Briatore said it is a tough market for a top driver in F1, especially
when compared to one of Europe's leading football players.

"There are ten attractive clubs in Europe," he said. "Messi would have a
much wider choice. In formula one you can only win with three teams."

However, it is widely believed that Alonso will struggle to return to
Mercedes or Ferrari, partly because of his reputation as a troublemaker.

"This is Ron Dennis' fault," Briatore insisted.

"He instigated the problem at McLaren in 2007, and Mercedes had nothing
to do with it at the time."

Former McLaren and Ferrari driver Gerhard Berger told Bild newspaper:
"For every expert and fan, it is bitter to see a driver like Fernando
fighting with dull weapons.

"On the other hand, Alonso left a lot of scorched earth behind him at
Mercedes and Ferrari and has to take it on the chin if it doesn't work
out," he added.

If he leaves his current team he's finished in F1 for good.

Simple as that.
