Pedro de la Rosa says there is no indication within McLaren that team chiefs are preparing to kick Fernando Alonso out.

The Woking based outfit’s principal test driver, also a Spaniard like 26-year-old Alonso, told the radio network Cadena SER that he would advise Ron Dennis and the double world champion to stay together next year.

“If you ask me what I would do, I would stay, because McLaren has proved to be a competitive team and Fernando is a born winner,” de la Rosa said.

But the Spaniard also advises Alonso to do make a decision that makes him happy.

“Well, in the end you need to be happy with what you are doing,” de la Rosa conceded.

“Nobody (at McLaren) is saying that Fernando is going to go. In fact, everyone is working as if he is going to stay.”
