The two-time world champion's pedigree has been buried in a sub-par McLaren vehicle this year, and with Alonso as yet not committing to any contract for next year, speculation has been mounting about a possible move away from the team or the sport altogether. 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.

The prospect of working with Honda in 2019 will not impress Verstappen or Ricciardo, as the Japanese company have been axed by McLaren after three woeful seasons.

He added: "Whatever I do next year is because I want to win".

I am looking for it - sooner rather than later. With some struggles we went through together, I want to have time together to make decisions, to see next year's vehicle and after they take a decision, I will take mine.

"It could be that Honda next year is very competitive, but I don't know what is decided for the future", he said. We can be strong, but we need to get the setup right for sure.

While Formula One's chairman emeritus Bernie Ecclestone was excited about Alonso staying in the sport, he thinks McLaren may end up disappointed after a while.

"After they take decisions, I will take mine. I just want to see what will happen at the beginning of 2018 and then we will know..."

Reports claim Renault's top brass have told Red Bull officials they no longer want to supply them after next season.

"I'm relaxed, happy, and we'll see what's going on in the next weeks".
