F1 2018 Alonso deal mere days from announcement

McLaren could be now just days away from announcing a new deal for Fernando Alonso.

Team boss Eric Boullier said earlier at Suzuka that he expects the Spaniard to eventually sign a 2018 contract.

Marca sports newspaper quoted Alonso as saying: “Next week I think everything will be clearer.”

Alonso’s former Renault teammate, Nelson Piquet jr, commented: “Alonso is a great guy. For me he is one of the best drivers on the grid and we keep in touch.

“He continues to perform at a high level at his age.”

As for 36-year-old Alonso’s next career step, Piquet added: “He really has had not many options.

“In the end he has no choice but to stay in McLaren.”
