Fernando Alonso is officially announced today at the end of the race with McLaren in the 2018 Formula 1 season.
The 2015-2006 F1 champion had no agreement for next year and was wondering what it would take for long.
In the end, the parties have agreed, and under this agreement, Alonso will continue to compete on behalf of McLaren in 2018.
Alonso was able to win only 8 points this year and is in the 16th place in the pilots championship. The Honda-powered McLaren vehicle has been far too far from giving you the expected one more time.
Alonso was expected to remain in the squad after McLaren announced his departure from Honda for the Renault motorcycle. After the negotiations were over, the parties agreed and Alonso was announced to be in the team next year.
However, Alonso did not disclose any details of the deal's duration.
Alonso "It's great news that my relationship with everyone in McLaren will continue."
"My heart always told me to stay, and I really feel at home here, it's full of wonderful team and incredible people, I have the friendliness and the warmth I have never seen anywhere else in Formula 1. I am incredibly happy to race here."
"The last three years have given us momentum in terms of planning and forming the future, I can not wait for this journey."
"I am excited about the future we will spend together and have already begun to work to make it successful." said.
Stoffel Vandoorne will continue to accompany Alonso next year.
"I am pleased to confirm that Fernando will be at McLaren for the last three years and he is a great contributor to the whole organization and he is an incredible individual, one of the most talented and complex drivers of the modern era."
"His dedication will help further improve the attractiveness and potential of our group, where we will be more confident and will take a meaningful step in 2018. Fernando fully understands this and acknowledges our step." said.
