BMW says no to Alonso gossip

Mon, 6 August 2007, 01:58

BMW’s Mario Theissen has counted the Munich manufacturer out of speculation that Fernando Alonso could be Hinwil-bound at the end of 2007.

A Renault return is the obvious favourite amid speculation that Spaniard Alonso wants to desert his McLaren contract, but it has been pointed out by the media that BMW-Sauber team principal Theissen has been recently open in his admiration for F1’s reigning world champion.

Sport-Informations-Dienst, however, quoted the German chief as saying in Hungary: “That is not momentarily a topic for us.”

Instead, it is rumoured strongly that – during the August break – Theissen will finalise Nick Heidfeld’s new contract to drive alongside Robert Kubica in 2008.
