Aston Martin wants to sign a new contract with Fernando Alonso.

On Thursday in Abu Dhabi, the Spaniard said his first year with the Silverstone based team was one of his best-ever performances in a long and successful Formula 1 career.

His friend and former rival Robert Kubica agrees.

"Alonso," said the Pole when asked if he would sign the Spaniard or seven time world champion Lewis Hamilton if he was running a F1 team.

"In my opinion, Alonso is the strongest of everyone even with an uncompetitive car," he told Gurulandia. Better even than Max Verstappen?

"In an uncompetitive car, yes," Kubica insisted.

Alonso left Alpine last winter to join Aston Martin because the former team admitted it had concerns about the 42-year-old's advancing years.

"No, I'm not concerned," Aston Martin team boss Mike Krack insisted on Friday when asked if Alonso's age is even a factor when contemplating the possibility of a contract extension for 2025.

Alonso is already under contract for 2024.

"I think I don't have to answer that question," Krack added when asked if he will offer Alonso a new deal for 2025. "Absolutely yes."
