Ex-team principal of Renault Flavio Briatore believes that in 2018, the patience and loyalty of Fernando Alonso against McLaren should be rewarded.
In the upcoming season, the double world champion will continue to play for the team from Woking. Switching from Honda engines to Renault, as expected, will allow McLaren to return to the fight for a good position, and that means that Alonso has a chance to interrupt their series of races without a podium, which runs from the Hungarian Grand Prix in 2014.
“The contract extension with McLaren says Fernando loyalty to the team, said Briatore in an interview AutoHedbo. – He did not expect such problems faced after moving to McLaren. Despite the lack of results in the last three years, Alonso left. He knows the mechanics of Renault and their potential. I hope this year Fernando will be able to finally get back on the podium.”
