Alonso states that McLaren's engine choice is not the main factor in deciding his future.
He gives LMP1 regulations, Indy aero and Andretti's plans as factors which suggests a multi-discipline future possibly?

Deadline was for McLaren to make a decision. Not an announcement.

We'll have to wait a little bit longer for that.

It was never going to be the Tuesday after Monza. Too many issues to be sorted. Crofty was a bit too eager.

Both Boullier and Alonso have only committed to being 'hopeful' of knowing the situation by Singapore.
It sounds like McLaren still haven't decided their CoA.

Is Wolff's latest comment aimed at RBR/STR?

How about... Renault engines show up at McLaren, and they are badged as Hondas... like the TAG Heuers at Red Bull Racing

Honda can shift their own rabble to Toro Rosso.. and figure out what is missing from their program.. and come back to McLaren if necessary.

Easy?

I very, very much doubt you could badge an engine as a rival brand.

That is never going to happen, maybe you could badge as Renault as a Nissan or infiniti obviously, but not a brand that has nothing to do with the source manufacturer.

AS what is the point? everyone would know it's really a Renault, same as everyone knows Red Bull use one, I never understood why they did that in the first place!!

McLaren Honda will shortly be no more as McLaren Renault is about to become a reality for 3 years up to the end of the 2020 season.

http://classic.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/131767

McLaren will have nowhere to hide as they will have the same motors as Red Bull and an improving Renault.

I'll await the official announcement but it looks like I'm due a trip to the chocolate hat shop as I've said all along that McL will have to stick with Hon next yer.
(Perhaps my wife is right, she's always telling me that I'm wrong...)

numerous sites now reporting it including motorsports.com...between that and autosport i would say its official.

https://www.motorsport.com/f1/news/m...ership-952183/

about time too!

however it turns out in 2018 for Mclaren, Honda, Renault, STR, and RB, its going to be a fun ride!

very excited to see what they all can do now...pretty much have already shifted my focus to 2018. the 2017 is now dead to me!

It could be interesting if McLaren were to kick Red Bulls 4$$ to be top dog in the Renault stakes, but it should be fun to watch.

Autosport & Motorsport.com are the same news source, operated by the same group of people..

At last, they have a decent engine in the back of their car. Hopefully Fred and Stoffel will be in the top ten where they belong more often.

BBC reports that the driver pairing at McLaren remains unchanged for 2018.
Renault and STR driver position probably next to be confirmed.
