F1 >>> nEWs Could the man to lead the new partnership between McLaren and Honda be Fernando Alonso? That was one of the more intriguing rumours swirling at Monaco, with suggestions that the Spaniard was being targeted by his former team to sign on for 2015. McLaren team boss Ron Dennis told the Italian media that he was open to the idea of having the double World Champion back, despite of the pair’s fiery relationship when Alonso was a McLaren driver in 2007. “Fernando would be welcome back at McLaren,” he said. “You’re surprised that I’m talking about Fernando? I don’t have any problem -- the most important thing is for us to win again. “In 2015 we have the Honda engine and we need a great driver.” Alonso is believed to have a deal with Ferrari that includes next season, but which has a performance-based exit clause that could be exercised should the team not meet certain results targets. With the team currently far behind MercedesGP and falling further behind Red Bull, any realistic performance targets seem a long way off. Last week Ferrari’s Luca di Montezemolo heaped substantial praise on Alonso, calling him the “best driver in the world” . While flattering, such praise would be consistent with the team’s previous attempts to placate drivers who might be looking outside the team for a more competitive seat. Any Alonso-to-McLaren move would look like bad news for Jenson Button. With the performance of the team’s new driver Kevin Magnussen this season impressing many, it would appear that the Dane has a future with the team, which may lead to Button looking elsewhere for a drive.
