  McLaren’s Alonso will not race in Formula 1 in 2019 McLaren Racing today confirms that double F1 World Champion Fernando Alonso will not race in Formula 1 in 2019. The McLaren driver announced his decision on Tuesday, mid-way through F1's summer break."After 17 wonderful years in this amazing sport, it's time for me to make a change and move on. I have enjoyed every single minute of those incredible seasons and I cannot thank enough the people who have contributed to make them all so special," Alonso said."There are still several grands prix to go this season, and I will take part in them with more commitment and passion than ever.

Red Bull look set to promote from within the team rather than risk ‘chaos’ by signing Fernando Alonso , according to Christian Horner. A Red Bull seat alongside Max Verstappen is vacant after Daniel Ricciardo decided to leave the team for Renault at the end of the 2018 season.

Red Bull have ruled out Fernando Alonso replacing the Renault-bound Daniel Ricciardo next season. 

The two-time world champion, who has spent the last four seasons at the wrong end of the grid with McLaren, has made clear he wants a winning drive in 2019 - and Red Bull, alongside Ferrari and Mercedes, are one of only three teams to have won in F1 since 2013.

But Red Bull chief Christian Horner does not believe the Spaniard would fit in at his team when Ricciardo departs.

"I have huge respect for Fernando, he is a great driver, a fantastic driver, but it's very difficult...he's tended to cause a bit of chaos wherever he's gone," Horner told F1's official podcast.

Red Bull team principal Christian Horner has ruled out signing Fernando Alonso as Daniel Ricciardo's replacement on the grounds that the two-time world champion has caused "chaos" wherever he has driven.

"I'm not sure it would be the healthiest thing for the team for Fernando to join. Our preference is to continue to invest in youth than take a driver who is obviously close to the end of his career."

Carlos Sainz, on loan at Renault, and Pierre Gasly, debuting in F1 this season at junior outfit Toro Rosso, are the favourites to replace Ricciardo.

"I think we will look at everything but l think the preferred route would be to invest in home talent," confirmed Horner.

"We are fortunate that we have got several drivers under contracts who are great talents. So I think we are going to sit back and just evaluate what the situation is and also see what comes out of the woodwork because it is an incredibly attractive car to be driving.

"I don't think we are going to be short of requests and offers."

Pressed to elaborate on the claims of Gasly and Sainz, Horner added: "Both of those drivers are very quick drivers.

"This just gives us an opportunity to take our breath, because they are under contract anyway until the end of the summer or beyond, and we will just look at the options available to us and make sure we make the right decision."
