Vettel hits out at young driver test theatre

Sebastian Vettel has hit out at the “typical theatre” surrounding the forthcoming post-Abu Dhabi test. The event had been billed as a ‘young driver test’, but the FIA has given eleventh-hour approval for 39-year-old double world champion Fernando Alonso to drive the 2020 Renault. It is believed Renault successfully argued that because the Spaniard didn’t race in 2019 or 2020, he should be given dispensation to do the test. “The rules are clear, so I don’t see how Carlos can drive that car,” he insisted. “When it became clear to us that no active driver can drive, we called off our participation in this test.
