It means they now sit sixth in the 2018 Constructor standings and they have taken the decision to revamp the backroom staff with Boullier resigning from his role.
"I don't know if it will be two, ten (years) or something in between, but realistically, it will take a while to solve it", he said. We closed a little bit of the gap to Renault, but the gap more closed on us from behind, so I think that's got to be the goal. So I think in that aspect it has always been like that in a way. This is going to take some time to fix.
'It's an uncompetitive and unacceptable situation. "For now we are not discussing next year but everything is possible".
The Spanish double world champion denied he was calling the shots at McLaren, with his former race engineer Andrea Stella promoted to performance director and Brazilian Gil de Ferran, an Indy 500 victor with whom Alonso worked at Indianapolis a year ago, brought in as sporting director.
Brown himself said he had consulted the drivers about the changes to the team's structure, but Alonso disagrees that was the case. No, definitely not. Did we have a better chassis?
"In the end, he felt that McLaren needed to move forward".
When asked by Formula1.com if McLaren were facing a wait similar to that of Mercedes and Red Bull to fight for the title, Brown said: "Yeah, realistically".
"What I'd like to do and what we are going to do is fight like mad to finish fourth in the championship".
Alonso has been kept in the loop on the changes and Brown hopes that he will stay with the team next year. 'A racer's instinct is important so it would be a mistake to not tap into his knowledge of how different teams operate and I've done that. De Ferran also worked with Alonso, whose influence within the team is considerable, at Indianapolis in 2017. He likes the McLaren environment and he obviously believes in us because he had the chance to leave this year but chose to stay and I believe he wants to be here long term.
"As for what Fernando does next year, there are several options", he said.
