Fernando Alonso believes Formula 1 will be back to normality for him in 2018 when Renault powers McLaren rather than Honda.
The end of Honda’s unsuccessful partnership with McLaren was finally announced ahead of the Singapore Grand Prix, with the team switching to Renaults in a three-year deal.
Asked how it would feel if he was able to return to frontrunner status with McLaren-Renault, Alonso replied, “Normality! But I think it is just looking too much ahead, because I don’t know even what I will do next year.”

The Spaniard seems unperturbed as he believes the new season holds a lot in stock. This is a peculiar situation seeing as it has been a decade that he was in line for the McLaren.
At the time, the Spaniard was the reigning back to back champion and he had a very clear shot at the McLaren when he was paired with a rookie; Lewis Hamilton.

“As a team, we need to take every opportunity we can to test things on the track for next year,” Alonso said.
“We need to learn and understand as much as we can about configurations or philosophies that we can put into next year’s car.”
During the second practice (FP2), the team switched focus to this weekend, with Alonso finishing in the eleventh position, just outside of the top ten and ahead of fellow team mate, Jenson Button.
Alonso also believes that FP2 helped his team learn more about their tyres especially as they were used in similar conditions as with what they would be experiencing in the race. Continue reading ALONSO HOPESTEAM CAN MAINTAIN THEIR MOMENTUM
