Fernando Alonso set to sign new contract with McLaren as team agrees engines deal with Renault

F1 Mc Laren And Honda Split To Be Announced At The Singapore GP

Mclaren and Renault have agreed on a three year engine supply deal that will commence in 2018 and extends up till 2020, when the current F1 regulations cycle comes to an end.

McLaren has used Honda engines since 2015, but the team repeatedly suffered engine troubles on the track.

The eight-time constructors' champions have scored points at just two races this year and sit above only Sauber in the standings ahead of the Singapore Grand Prix.

Though it was all but confirmed earlier this week, it has finally been made official that Carlos Sainz Jr will join the Renault Sport F1 team for the 2018 Formula One season. This new found alliance can be a move from McLaren to retain Alonso, who won two championships (2005, 2006) under Renault.

"Our performance today was good; basically in line with what we were expecting around here", said Alonso.

'The situation becomes increasingly more complicated as Alonso's co-manager, former Renault chief, Flavio Briatore is overseeing the deal'. "We've been speaking a lot", Brown said.

"It is positive news for us to be able to confirm Carlos for 2018".

McLaren has confirmed it will switch to Renault power next season after bringing an early end to its engine partnership with Honda.

"Of course I knew that with the job I've done this year, the team is looking for other people, because it's been a tough year". Oh, and what must - by now - be hundreds of grid penalties.

However, Honda protégé Nobuharu Matsushita is a possible candidate. He is a dedicated driver and we wish him the best for the rest of his career.

"They have a fantastic infrastructure".

Kubica meanwhile has not had a full-time drive in F1 since 2010 and after a serious rally crash in 2011, thought he might never drive again.

Mirroring McLaren's partnership with Honda, Red Bull have been highly critical of the Renault power-unit in recent years, which has seen the team drop from world-champions to the third best team over the last four years. "We'll be interested to see how he fares against Hulkenberg".

"Toro Rosso is not Ferrari and Mercedes, we don't have the infrastructure", Tost said. He also came through the Red Bull junior program.

The move also has ramifications in the driver market - both Red Bull drivers are potential title winners and neither Daniel Ricciardo nor Max Verstappen are likely to want to stay if the team use Honda engines and they are at the level they are now.
