Carlos Sainz has refused to confirm if there’s any truth behind the rumour that he could end up driving for McLaren in 2019 but says he’s ready to be teammates with Fernando Alonso.

Speaking during Thursday’s press conference, the Renault driver was pushed hard by Journalists about the rumour which has been built off speculation that Esteban Ocon could take his seat at Renault.

“I’m ready to beat anyone in the field,” Sainz told the reporters, “probably Fernando would be the biggest ask that you could have on the grid.”

Sainz did confirm his future was still undecided and says he’s waiting to see what happens with Daniel Ricciardo, who is expected to re-sign with Red Bull in 2019.
