As reported on BBC Sports

McLaren boss Martin Whitmarsh said: “I think he’s a better driver now compared to when we signed him (in December). We are very happy with the progress he has made. Fernando’s consistency is astounding and he has grown in stature.”

“He was never one for making a lot of mistakes, but his performance this year has been quite incredible. It may not feel pleasant now but we are hoping it will feel pleasant this time next year.”

Counting the chickens before they hatch ?? I agree that Alonso is in terrific form this year, but that is equally attributed to the fact that Renault is able to maintain the high standards in their car development. But same thing can’t be said for McLaren-Mercedes given their recent past.

Before Alonso could start winning some races for McLaren next year, it is more important that McLaren get their car development upto the same standards in place first.
