Alonso: 'If we win by September, I will stay!'

"If we are winning before September when I make a decision, I will stay".

And while McLaren still wanted to win championships with Honda, there were serious concerns as to whether that was achievable. I think everyone is more relaxed, is happy. That is all I can say right now.

He's one of the best drivers on the grid, but he's stuck with Honda's unreliable, underpowered power unit in his McLaren, effectively rendering him noncompetitive. After three years we are not in that position so things have to change, I guess for the team.

Within McLaren, the pressure is growing on engine supplier Honda, with executive director Zak Brown saying his team is at a "fork in the road" over its plans for the future. "We are working hard to rectify the issues we had in the last race and hope we can attack this weekend".

"We have to win", he explained.

"The Indy 500 was an incredible experience and it's been wonderful to learn a completely different style of driving, on a different circuit layout and with a very different auto, but I'm ready to get back to my "day job" and go racing in F1 again".

"They have got some unique bits on the vehicle which will work well this weekend but it doesn't mean we can't take the fight to them".

Toshiba shares rise on report Broadcom chosen as chip unit buyer
Broadcom has teamed up with USA buyout firm Silver Lake in its bid for the chip business, sources have told Reuters previously. Foxconn acquired Sharp previous year in a deal worth in the neighborhood of $3.5 billion.

Until recently, senior figures were briefing that McLaren would definitely stick with Honda in 2018 but the ground appears to have shifted and there are growing indications that they may split.

McLaren and Honda share a storied Formula 1 history with four championships won between 1988 and 1991.

Alonso was then questioned about what it would take for him to stay at McLaren beyond the end of the season. Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull are considered unlikely to want to sign him and while Renault is keen, it also could not afford to pay him anything like the amount of money he is earning this year. I think I developed my skills to drive F1 cars for the last 16 years, so the best auto that I can drive is still a Formula One vehicle.

"As I said many times, a third world championship in F1 is still my biggest priority".

"If there are 25 or 26 racers or whatever maybe it's good in one aspect and bad in other aspects in how demanding your life becomes". But at another time I can jump in any auto, in any category, with any tyres, with any rules that I go there and I'm competitive.

"I'm not afraid of the future".

His goal remains a third Formula One world championship and if that can not be accomplished with McLaren, then he will look elsewhere.
