McLaren to switch to Renault engines from 2018

Fernando Alonso McLaren Singapore Grand Prix

Just after FP1 concluded in Singapore, a series of announcements were made about 2018 - with McLaren officially splitting from Honda and taking up a new deal with Renault, who dropped Toro Rosso, allowing Red Bull's junior team to sign a "multi-year" deal with the beleaguered Japanese manufacturer.

Formula One sources say Honda will take their engines to Toro Rosso, whose current supply of Renault power units will then become available for McLaren.

"I don't have data about what Renault expects and the improvements it has planned for next year", Alonso said on Friday ahead of the Singapore Grand Prix. It is not always the money that is decisive for success and I hope Toro Rosso will work efficiently because this is our slogan, to get the most out of the package. This thought actually crossed my mind at one point, but then I realised that I'd had the same thought around this time last year, when the McLaren-Honda was again starting to look like it was coming good. "This heritage, together with the full confidence that we have in Honda's capabilities to succeed, make me strongly believe that we will achieve a fruitful future together". On top of that, the McLarens of Fernando Alonso and Stoffel Vandoorne have already gone through more than ten power unit failures within the course of the 2017 season.

Standout Toro Rosso driver (which isn't hard to do alongside Daniil Kvyat) Carlos Sainz Jr. will be loaned out to Renault for 2018, the team confirmed today.

Max Verstappen has failed to finish six times for Red Bull this season: Twice as many as last season.

McLaren claims to be "very close" to securing a new contract with Fernando Alonso that will see him remain as one of Formula One's best paid drivers.

"Part of the reason they did that is to make sure they keep Alonso", Andretti said.

Compounding that figure further is the team's loss of sponsorship revenue after five years of competitive decline, three of which have been in partnership with Honda, and the corresponding loss of prize money due to poor results.

The Toro Rosso-Honda, McLaren-Renault announcement finalises all of the teams' engine plans for 2018.

The move to appoint Sainz casts doubt over Palmer's future in the sport with only a limited number of seats yet to be finalised for 2018. That means so much to our team. "For our company F1 is a very important culture as well as being in the DNA of our company".

The move was widely expected as the British team continued to struggle with Honda's engines, their partners throughout successes in the late 1980s and early 1990s, as it lies ninth on the 2017 Constructor Standings. The plan is to still have six cars at Indy.
