Fernando Alonso willing to wait for success with McLaren-Honda

Fernando Alonso says that he is prepared to wait for success at the new McLaren-Honda team.

Fernando Alonso has insisted that he is not expecting fast success with the new McLaren-Honda team.

The Spaniard, who left Ferrari at the end of the season, was confirmed as a new McLaren driver for the 2015 campaign, alongside Jenson Button.

"I am here to win, but not to win the first day," BBC Sport quotes Alonso as saying. "I am here to win in a long-term relationship. If we need to go through a period of learning, I am here for that and I am committed to working together."

Alonso, who is a two-time Formula 1 world champion, raced for McLaren back in 2007, but spent just one year there before moving on to Renault.
