Alonso to be replaced by ‘Norris’ at McLaren

Published

Fernando Alonso is in the final season of his deal with McLaren and he is widely expected to leave the Britishx F1 squad.

According to Spanish outlet Diario Gol, up-and-coming Formula Two driver Lando Norris will replace the two-time world champion. The 18-year-old Norris, from Glastonbury, is highly regarded in the world of motorsport.

Alonso has grown increasingly frustrated with McLaren for not giving him a car to be able to challenge the likes of Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull.

So Diario Gol say he will walk away at the end of his current deal, opening the door for Norris.

“It showed us the potential of the power unit and it gives us good motivation that with this power unit we will be able to fight if we do a good job on the chassis side,” said Alonso.

“We are not quite there yet. We need to close that gap and we need to work harder on the chassis side.

“We know that we have to improve, no doubts. We can’t hide that.

“But at the same time we are doing our job on Sundays and scoring as many points as possible for the team.”
