British youngster Lando Norris will make his F1 race weekend debut for McLaren in Practice One for the Belgian GP on Friday.
The 18-year-old is regarded as one of single-seater racing's most talented youngsters after winning the European F3 title last year and he now sits second in the F2 drivers' standings: Mercedes' young driver George Russell leads the series.
Of McLaren's 52 points, 44 have been scored by Alonso.
Alonso's decision prompted McLaren to sign Carlos Sainz from Renault.
Could Norris be part of the F1 2019 grid?

"Carlos was performing well at Renault but it's impossible to know if McLaren is a good move for him", said the 2009 world champion.
But former team-mate Jenson Button reckons the 37-year-old is by no means done with F1 and if McLaren start challenging at the front again, he could return.
"He [Alonso] has done the same thing as what I chose to do - leave but leave it open, for one year after, to go back". "It'll be my first time in a McLaren on a @F1 race weekend and there's no better place to do it than Spa".
