Fernando Alonso is back! Double world champion returns to the cockpit for the first time in two years as he tests new Renault car in Barcelona ahead of making his Formula One comeback in 2021

Double world champion Fernando Alonso says his return to the cockpit is like a ‘new beginning’ after he tested the latest Renault Formula One car in Barcelona on Tuesday. The Spaniard, a two-times Le Mans 24 Hours winner, has not competed in a Grand Prix since he left McLaren at the end of 2018 but is returning next year as replacement for departing Australian Daniel Ricciardo. Alonso tested the new Renault car in Barcelona ahead of his Formula One comeback next year. The test in the RS20 car came 20 years after Alonso first tested with Benetton – the team that then became Renault – at the same circuit. The Spaniard said returning to the track and testing the new car is like a new beginning. The Spaniard, who won his titles with Renault in 2005 and 2006, has competed in the Dakar Rally and Indianapolis 500 since he was last in Formula One.
