We all know that, Fernando Alonso is waiting for his clamorous coming back in Formula 1 in 2020 with his historic team, Renault.
What is yet to decide is when the Spaniard will be allowed to test his future car. Renault, indeed is currently in talks with the FIA. After the denial to let Alonso get in the car during a FP1, “La Règie” is trying hard to figure out how their future driver can do to test his car in 2020.
Currently, the talks are all about a post-season Abu Dhabi test. However, there is an issue in doing it because in the wake of the pandemics’ many regulations have changed and it is still unclear whereas the limits can allow Alonso to test the car or not.
The Pirelli’s rubber for the next season is virtually going to remain still for next season as well. This would make Yas Marina perfectly fit for Renault to arrange a test for Alonso, even if it was planned for young drivers.

Abiteboul takes the word on this matter: “At the start, it was much more about the future- he stated - It was let's go very hard on 2022 and forget about 2021 and write off 2021. But as he sees that we are starting to have interesting battles on track, Fernando, he wants to feed the blood: in a positive way. He wants to see that there is something that he can grasp."
Fernando Alonso is certainly not that kind of driver who can be content with a “in the points’ zone finish” and he accepted to come back in the major Formula with just one, clear goal: to grasp some important results. Renault by the time is not doing anything outstanding but the driver could definitely have set an eye on 2022 season. That’s when all the rules will change and when Formula 1 can be thrilled and happy to start a new era and get fresh and exciting once again.
