Many observers believe that McLaren is hoping to land a Renault supply and move Honda to Toro Rosso, now running with Renault power, but after several meetings in the Monza paddock no announcement was forthcoming at the weekend. How long can you wait before you've got upset drivers, upset partners and upset fans? "Fortunately we have extremely committed shareholders that we can make a sporting decision and deal with economics".
"I seem to have a lot of breakfasts with Fernando now and he loves the team and is as passionate as ever to drive", continued Brown.
McLaren have been in talks with Renault bosses and Honda all weekend, with Formula One's managing director for motorsport Ross Brawn - a former Honda team principal - also involved.
However keeping the status quo with Honda wouldn't necessarily lead to Alonso's departure.
Meanwhile Red Bull's Christian Horner says they are open to a Toro Rosso-Honda deal, and admitted they wouldn't stand in the way of Renault doing a deal with McLaren, despite holding veto powers.
"There's been some reports about IndyCar and things of that nature, [but] he wants to be in Formula 1". We think we understand the lack of power in the engine so it's not different problems all of the time but it is a few problems.We need to get more competitive and this weekend showed that we're just not making any significant progress. "We need to get more competitive".

Alonso, 36, is out of contract at the end of the campaign, but it is expected he will sign a new deal on the proviso McLaren are powered by Renault next year.
"I'm going to have to sit down with all the options that we have and decide what's the best one", said Alonso on Friday at Monza.
"There's a lot to do and we need to start working on developing the strong point of the vehicle".
"We need to know what we do and where we go because there is a timing issue with design of next year's auto".
"I believe there are options in the market to be winning next year and that's going to be my only intention, and if I can't find them or see them, I'll try to win wherever I go. We need to keep looking at what the possibilities are for the future and make a decision (on my future) in September". "The team did improve a lot in the last three years so I think we have the talent in the team, we have the facilities and everything". The Japanese manufacturers will make an announcement before the next race in Singapore a week on Sunday.
"We want to make sure everything is handled well with Honda and they stay in the sport, whether that's with us or another team". "Probably early in the month, is the time we're going to take a decision on our direction for next year".
