Formula 1: Alonso coy on F1 future

The Spaniard is under contract with McLaren until the end of next season and has previously stated that the Woking-based marque will be his last in Formula One.
Whether or not he is offered a new deal with his present employers only time will tell but the 34-year-old is refusing to make any assurances that he would sign on the dotted line anyway.
"I'm 34 and I could go on for more years but it's all about motivation and willingness," he told Cadena Ser radio. "I'm just thinking about next year.

"We will see how I feel when the time comes, if I sign a contract extension."
Alonso has not won a race since the 2013 Spanish Grand Prix and is behind the wheel of an uncompetitive car that has no chance of challenging the top stars.
However, the two-time F1 champion has made it clear that the competitive juices are still flowing despite his lack of success.
"The hunger is always there," he added. "After one year and a half without being close to the podium, I have more motivation. I come out as a lion in every race."
