Abu Dhabi - Fernando Alonso was left baffled Saturday (November 28) by McLaren team chief Ron Dennis's cryptic suggestion that the two-time world champion may be taking a sabbatical in 2016.

"I haven't spoken to him (Dennis), so I don't think that's true. It's always the same story. When Ron or another driver says something, then I have to respond and guess what they meant to say.
