Last month it was announced that McLaren would be ending their partnership with Honda after three years. Instead, McLaren would be partnering up with Renault for a three year deal. At the time, it was unknown whether or not Fernando Alonso would remain with McLaren.
Alonso had stated that he would remain if there was a competitive engine, but also expressed interest in shopping himself around:
"There are options everywhere and they are all very good... You just need to be patient and wait a couple of weeks.”
Well, it has been a couple of weeks, and yesterday it was announced that Alonso has extended his contract for the 2018 season, with no details on the length of the contract.
In celebration, McLaren tweeted out this video with the various members of the company learning Spanish and quotes like "Where is the contract?" and "My engine is good." The ad finishes up with an appearance by Alonso himself saying "See you next year."
