Oct.6 (GMM) Fernando Alonso is refusing to weigh into the political turmoil in Spain.
In his native country, an argument is raging between the region of Catalonia – which is seeking independence – and the Spanish government.
“Everyone has his own opinion,” Alonso said at Suzuka, “but I prefer not to get involved. That is my position.”
According to the Spanish sports daily Diario Sport, Alonso had a similar response when asked about the progress of his 2018 McLaren-Renault contract.
“There’s nothing new to say for now,” he said.
