Haas rejects Alonso rumour

Apr.14 (GMM) Haas has rejected a sensational rumour suggesting Fernando Alonso might move to the American team for 2019.

The news was first reported by Diario Gol, saying that Haas had been in touch with the McLaren-driving Spaniard as a potential replacement for Romain Grosjean — who may move to Ferrari.

“Alonso to Haas? That’s the first I’ve heard of that,” Haas team boss Gunther Steiner told BT newspaper in China.

“I think we can definitely reject that,” he added.
