Double world champion Fernando Alonso will stay with McLaren in 2018, the team said Thursday in a long-expected announcement that finally ended one of the sagas of the Formula One season.McLaren did not say whether the contract extended beyond next year.McLaren have gone some way toward answering those doubts by ending a troubled partnership with Honda and switching to Renault engines in 2018 .McLaren are currently ninth overall, out of 10 teams, and the season ranks as the worst of Alonso's career with the exception of his debut year with now-defunct tail-enders Minardi.He has six retirements in 16 races so far in 2017, and failed to start in Russia while also missing Monaco to compete at the Indianapolis 500 in May.
