McLaren ditch Honda amid talk of Renault switch — BREAKING NEWS

Hit the road Jack

With Alonso behind the wheel, and using a Renault engine, McLaren could expect a significant performance boost next year. Instead it continued with Renault units rebranded as TAG-Heuer, and though tension between the two organizations was slightly contained, the two continued to spar both publicly and privately. "The triple crown is a clear target for me", he said, while suggesting there was a chance he might yet compete at Le Mans in 2018.

As with Toro Rosso, the deal is likely to be worth a lot of money to Red Bull as it will no longer be paying for its engines, and will probably receive funding from Honda on top, which means that Red Bull boss Dietrich Mateschitz's financial commitment will be substantially reduced.

With the McLaren-Renault deal, the team hopes to retain the services of Fernando Alonso beyond 2017, who has been pretty vocal about the team's lack of competitiveness.

It's possible to pinpoint from just the merest scan of Emerson Fittipaldi's F1 results where his career fell off the cliff.

In a new development, reports have surfaced that another team will be parting ways with their current engine supplier.

The payback for Toro Rosso in taking on the weakest power unit in the field is the potential to grow into a fully-fledged outfit in their own right away from parent outfit Red Bull. In truth it is a multimillion-dollar gamble primarily at the behest of star driver Fernando Alonso. "They had to do something for their sponsors, owners, fans and drivers". You can go, 'wow, he is getting all the attention, this and that' and it can play with your mind and wear you down.

The gamble's prospects get only worse from there.

Toro Rosso chief Franz Tost believes the Honda link-up provides a "very exciting challenge" for his team.

He scored his last win at his home Spanish Grand Prix in 2013, with Ferrari, and has scored a meagre 75 points since he rejoined McLaren at the start of their partnership with Honda in 2015. So starved of winning was Alonso that he gave the Monaco Grand Prix in May a miss to race in the Indy 500. "I am relaxed, happy, and we will see what is happening in the next weeks".

McLaren had pencilled in an announcement that he would be staying for Saturday after qualifying, but that is no longer the case.

Although Ricciardo has won one race and secured five other podium finishes this season, Verstappen has made no secret of his utter frustration with his car's engine failures. Seb got to complete it - he is the only guy.
