Prior to the engine deal with Honda in 2015, McLaren was engaged with Mercedes-Benz from 1995 to 2014. 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 highly-rated Aussie is growing frustrated by his lack of silverware.

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

"I still believe I can do that absolutely".

The news has not been made public yet, but can be revealed here ahead of the Singapore Grand Prix weekend.

Honda will not be leaving F1 despite McLaren's decision, as Toro Rosso is said to make the switch from Renault to the Japanese supplier next season.

"After they take decisions, I will take mine".

"At the same time, I want to give time to my team. I am relaxed, happy, and we see what is happening in the next weeks".

And Verstappen could also trigger an exit clause in his contract, sending the driver market into a frenzy.

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.
