Alonso's uncertain future

Spanish former world champion admits future at Renault uncertain.

Fernando Alonso's future at Renault remains uncertain after he admitted that he is yet to make a decision on where he will race next season.

The Spaniard returned to the French squad at the end of last year after a controversial year with McLaren.

Renault, though, have struggled to keep pace with the midfield pack, let alone fight for Championship honours with Ferrari, McLaren and BMW.

The team's poor form has prompted speculation that the two-time World Champion will quit once the season draws to a close.

Alonso himself has done very little to deny that speculation.

"I don't know (if I will stay with Renault)," he told a news conference.

"It's not been a good year so far and it has been worse than we expected. We have not been on the podium, let alone won a race."


"We have a lot of work to do. I will take a decision on my future towards the end of the year when we'll be able to see how far we have come."

However, the Spaniard remains optimistic about Renault's chances at their home Grand Prix this weekend.

"In France we have a lot of support and for me it's like racing in Barcelona," he added.

"During the week the team have worked hard and have made improvements with the car in testing. We have taken another step forward.

"I feel full of confidence at the moment and we are on the right track."
