Alonso And Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Agree To Move On

Following a meeting between Fernando Alonso and
McLaren, it was agreed that it would be in the best interests of both parties to bring
the relationship to an end.

The mutual parting of ways has not been discussed until now, since it was felt that any
such discussion could have seriously disrupted the team?s and Fernando?s 2007
Formula 1 World Championship challenge. Both parties believe that this was the right

?Since I was a boy I had always wanted to drive for McLaren, but sometimes in life
things do not work out. I continue to believe that McLaren is a great team. Yes, we
have had our ups and downs during the season, which has made it extra-challenging
for all of us, and it is not a secret that I never really felt at home. I know there have
been suggestions of favouritism within the team and people say a lot of things in the
heat of battle, but in the end I was always provided with an equal opportunity to win.
Today?s decision allows all of us to focus on 2008, and I wish the team, Vodafone,
Banco Santander, Mutua Madrile
