Alonso reveals his future plan

Two-time champion Fernando Alonso’s frustrations have been well documented this season, but if recent media reports are to be believed, the Spaniard has delivered an ultimatum to McLaren if things do not improve over the next six months.

The Spaniard told a news conference ahead of the Spanish Grand Prix that he was happy with the team, but that his aim was to try and win a third drivers’ world title.

“My intention, and my first priority, is to race in the F1 next year, but not just to race… Also to win. I’m happy with the team, but we are not winning.

“If from here to September, or October, I see an opportunity to win in 2018, I’ll be more than happy to stay.

“If it’s not the case, I will be more than happy to talk to anyone…”

On a wet day in Barcelona, Alonso was in a rather mischievous mood and didn’t hesitate to talk about the Indy500 challenge that he is set to feature in. Highlighting his plans ahead of the event, he said he will be looking to fly to the United States next week to put the final touches to an otherwise “gruelling” preparation.

He revealed that he has already had it written into his contract that he will keep his race car, as used in America on May 28, and put it on display in his personal car museum in Spain.
