Fernando Alonso Not Prepared to Gamble His Future

Fernando Alonso Not Prepared to Gamble His Future

McLaren-Honda Driver Fernando Alonso has said he will not gamble and wants to be reasonably assured of success wherever he drives in 2018.

With his contract running out by the end of the F1 season, the two time Formula One Champion predicts some unexpected seats may become available, after three years of frustration with McLaren and Honda will love to be assured of success where ever he goes.

"As I said many times, I want to win next year and I don't want to gamble too much in any decision, I want to be more or less safe in wherever I go for," he told SSN.

"Very open for anything so let's see what the next months bring for McLaren, because it's a team that I'm running now, a team that I like and in the last two or three years we've put a lot of effort in all together to grow up in this project. We'll see what happens."

Concerning His Future

Alonso admits he does not "have a clear picture of what is going to happen" but predicts more seats may become available on the grid than currently meets the eye.

"There are some movements out there," he said. "I know there are even more movements than probably we all know and there are some teams we think are set for next year, I don't think it's so clear that they are 100 per cent confirmed. So I think there will be a lot of changes for next year.

"I will try to stay calm and pick up the best decision for next year."

Concerning McLaren Switch from Honda To Mercedes

"Obviously in McLaren at the moment we are not very competitive and we know one of the parts, the engine side, is not competitive enough to win," Alonso added.

"I'm sure that the team is exploring whatever possibility to make this competitive and hopefully next year McLaren will be in a different position. It's what we all want but in my case, it's independent to whatever engine they have.

"I just want to win. We'll see what happens."
