Alonso 'tired' of F1 midfield
(GMM) According to the Spanish press, Fernando Alonso is growing weary of life in the formula one midfield.
With every passing day, the signs are growing stronger that the Spaniard will definitely leave Renault - perhaps at the end of this season - to join Ferrari.
In multiple press interviews now, the 27-year-old has spoken glowingly about the famous team, and on Sunday said he was "excited" to hear that a poll in an authoritative Italian newspaper showed that the country's fans want him to occupy a red car in 2010.
On the other hand, Alonso is increasingly downbeat about his current mount, the Enstone built R29, even after boss Flavio Briatore promised him an improved package for Turkey and a race-winning car before the end of the season.
Briatore, blaming traffic in Monaco, said: "I think today Fernando could have easily competed with Ferrari and Red Bull, but not Brawn."
In the pages of Spain's El Mundo, Alonso responded: "I am not going to spend the entire press conference responding to what Flavio has said or not said.
"We are going to introduce new pieces in Turkey but I think everything will stay more or less the same. It happened in Barcelona: everyone promised the world and everything stayed the same," said Alonso.
In Diario AS, he was quoted as continuing: "I am still very motivated, but I'm tired of being left behind."
