Apr.6 (GMM) Mario Theissen in Bahrain had no time for suggestions that BMW Sauber's evolution into a truly top team will have stirred the interest of Fernando Alonso.
When asked about his future earlier this weekend, 26-year-old Alonso confirmed that he is on the market for a winning seat in 2009, mentioning both Ferrari and BMW as potentially attractive options.But as Robert Kubica captured the Swiss based team's first pole position on Saturday, team principal Theissen insisted that he is very happy with his current pair of drivers."I prefer not to talk about other teams," the German told the Spanish newspaper Diario AS, when asked if he had thought about poaching Alonso from Renault for 2009."I am very happy with our own drivers," he added.Theissen insists that he regards pole sitting Kubica, the 22-year-old Pole, as one of the best drivers on the grid."If we did not think that, we would not have him on board," he said.
