Alonso And Renault

Flavio Briatore’s Tuesday deadline has passed without any announcement. But there are some whispers around the things are moving towards one year deal with an option and some performance criteria – not for Alonso but for Renault.

There is not exactly a long line of suitors that would interesting for Alonso, so he may be inclined to such a compromise with Renault. Spanish paper Marca allegedly suggests Alonso and Renault are only days away from a deal. The rumours are (rumours !) that Alonso will be free to leave Renault after a single season if the team fails to meet certain minimal performance and results criteria.

The Guardian goes even further saying Briatore is close to finalising the sponsorhip deal with a consortium that includes Telefonica to finance USD20 million a year deal with Alonso. Alonso and Renault were last night allegedly already close to agreement on such a deal.

The papers further speculate that Fisichella has been told there is no room for him in Renault next year, that Kovalainen will now move to McLaren and Nelson Piquet Jr. will partner Fernando Alonso. These are however pretty logical conclusions that anybody would make once Alonso’s move to Renault is confirmed.

Did Frank Williams know more about all this before he came out with his Williams team drivers line up confirmation for 2008 ?

So let’s enjoy the rumour mill while it lasts and wait and see what next few hours or days will bring.
