Fernando Alonso isn't leaving Ferrari anytime soon according to his manager Luis Garcia Abad, following speculation he is tiring of their poor development pace.

The Spaniard has often been quoted as saying he will end his career with the Italian team, but some believe he is beginning to look elsewhere as his hopes of a third title continue to fade.

"That's nonsense," Abad told DPA. "I would not advise a change of team for not winning [the title].

"Alonso is fourth of the drivers who have won the most grands prix [ever] and he has won two world championships.

"Some drivers have retired from Formula 1 without ever winning a single race," he added.

Alonso currently sits second in the championship, just 34 points adrift of Sebastian Vettel. However whilst the German continues to enjoy the advantage of a quick car, Ferrari have struggled to add pace to its F138 since the opening rounds and is now, arguably, the fourth quickest behind Red Bull, Mercedes and Lotus.
