Alonso hits back at latest McLaren rumours

Fernando Alonso has hit back at the latest reports suggesting a move to McLaren for 2014 is still a possibility for the Spaniard.

Some Italian journalists, and also the British broadcaster Sky, said that despite the initial speculation having faded in recent weeks, Alonso's departure from Ferrari to re-join his 2007 employer McLaren is still on the cards.

"If Alonso was free, we would still be interested," Germany's Auto Motor Sport quoted McLaren team boss Martin Whitmarsh as saying in Korea.

Alonso, however, hit back at the latest reports.

"People write what they want," he reportedly said.

"I can't do any more than say that I am staying at Ferrari."
