Fernando Alonso said that even if the season 2017 will turn out a disaster for McLaren-Honda, it will not force him to leave Formula 1.
Yesterday two-time world champion sharply criticized Honda, saying that the only problem with the McLaren pre-season tests in Barcelona are not powerful enough and unreliable power plant of the Japanese manufacturer.
Fernando Alonso: Honda has neither power nor reliability
After this statement in the press immediately rumors spread that Fernando could leave F1 at the end of 2017, but the Spaniard denied this information.
“I always act contrary to the opinion of people who said Alonso in an interview AUTOSPORT.com. – When people are pessimistic, I become optimistic. And when people, on the contrary, Express excessive optimism I do not share it.
I’m sure that in 2017 we will be competitive: I don’t know at what point of the season it will happen but that day will come.
I want to win the race and climb the podium. If all goes awry, I’ll… I’ll attack next year. It motivates me to pursue a career and to win.
I will not stop chasing until you reach a good result which I think he deserved it.
If one day I’ll find that other pilots are better than me turns, brake later, accelerate sooner and better than me hold starts, then I’ll leave the sport.
But now the situation is reversed. From what I have seen on winter tests, I’m at the highest level. This means that it’s time to attack.”
