The Spaniard speaking from Wembley Stadium on Friday – When the media Asked if he will be in Melbourne for the season-opening Australian Grand Prix, Alonso, 34, said: “Yes.

“I talked to Ron on Friday, I told him what had been published. He said I didn’t mean that and tomorrow I will clarify it. On Saturday he clarified but no one copied that.

“I said the opposite on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and I’m sure in January and February I will keep answering the same questions about my future.”

“Right now, it is too long ahead to think. Let’s see what happens in one and a half years and what the situation is, what are the targets we have met and we hadn’t met and what the motivations are to keep going on in Formula 1.”
