Zak Brown has admitted it is possible Fernando Alonso will leave McLaren and Formula 1 for the Indycar series in 2019.

Brown, the McLaren team boss, said the Spaniard is "very interested" in the American open wheel category.

'We need to make a decision'

"He likes the series but hasn't decided yet what he wants to do as it relates to F1. But our decision is not Fernando dependent," he told the Indy Star.

Brown is referring to McLaren's own deliberations, as talks with Michael Andretti's Indycar outfit about a team collaboration take place.

Andretti has even set a mid-August deadline.

"I hadn't heard that he put a date out there. But we are going to have to make a decision soon.

Right now, we're laser-focused on formula one. We have driver decisions to make. We just hired a new technical director. That being said, we feel we still have time to make a decision on Indycar for 2019," Brown said.
