Alonso still waiting for young driver test answer

Renault is still waiting to hear if Fernando Alonso will be permitted to do the forthcoming ‘young driver test’ in Abu Dhabi. Although the Spanish driver is a 39-year-old double world champion, team boss Cyril Abiteboul argued that Alonso’s two-year sabbatical is reason enough to ask the FIA for special dispensation. We have those four days of driving anyway,” he added, referring to Alonso’s recent runs in the 2018 car in Bahrain and Abu Dhabi. Abiteboul says Alonso is “highly motivated” for his return to Formula 1 next year. “I can tell you that the old man has lost none of his spirit,” Abiteboul added.
