Alesi retires from motor racing as sponsorship runs dry
19 December, 2012
At the wheel of a highly uncompetitive Lotus Indycar, the F1 veteran made his Indy 500 debut this year and vowed to return in 2013 with a better performance.
But the 48-year-old Frenchman, who won just one grand prix for Ferrari during his 202-grand prix career between 1989 and 2001, announced this week that he is in fact quitting motorsport.
“I do not feel like hunting for sponsors,” Alesi told the French sports daily L’Equipe.
