Formula 1 – Alonso sees reasons to be cheerful

Fernando Alonso says there are no excuses left for the McLaren team as they attempt to return to their former glories. McLaren have struggled in the last three years but the team were happy to blame former engine partner Honda for their poor performances. They switched to Renault over the winter and Alonso believes he can see signs of improvement. The Spaniard said: "Now we know that on the power unit side we have the same engines as Red Bull, so it's all on us, the chassis development, to close that gap. "We are [heading] in the right direction but we need to score points every Sunday." Alonso is 8/11 with bet365 to clinch a Top 6 finish at this weekend's Monaco Grand Prix while Lewis Hamilton is 11/4 to win the race.
