So, where to, Fernando?
Close on three weeks after receiving his decree absolute in the matter McLaren Racing versus Fernando Alonso Diaz, there is still no news as to the Spaniard's intentions for 2008 and beyond.
Rumours abound, yes, as do wishful statements from, amongst others, Renault, his former team, and the one with whom he won a brace of record-setting world titles, but hard and fast announcement: no.
In addition to the French outfit, the driver has variously been linked to Ferrari, Toyota, BMW, Red Bull and Honda. Such is Alonso's reputation as a driver that, despite some unsavoury shenanigans he is said to have been involved with at McLaren, ten out of the 11 teams on the grid would seriously consider clearing a cockpit to accommodate him.
