Some More Fernando Alonso Buzz And Rosberg Rumours Revived

48 hours passed and Flavio still has no news to announce. According to Alonso’s manager Luis Garcia Abad, Alonso will take time before he makes up his time and “will decide when he knows the best option for his future”.

The rumours coming out of Renault suggest that the talks have stalled. While Briatore would be willing to accept 1 year contract with Alonso, Carlos Ghosn, the Renault CEO allegedly says firmly “It is 3 years of nothing.”

In the meantime the Toyota and Red Bull rumours are still alive and kicking and Alonso seems to be acting like he has lots of options to choose from.

The other piece of information that appeared is that Nico Rosberg still may find himself racing for McLaren next year. German press reports that Frank Williams would be willing to accept around US$22 million from McLaren for Rosberg’s release. At the same time, Willy Weber, Michael Schumacher’s manager, advises Rosberg not to do it. He warns “McLaren could very quickly destroy his career, Hamilton is their number one, even if officially they will not say it.”

    If not Renault then where would Alonso go? Surely Toyota and Red Bull would not be competitive enough for him?

    If he brings his famous 0.6 second with him, he could help them up the grid a bit and if they let him stay for just 1 year, that may be exactly what he wants, if he plans to join Ferrari in 2009 (as rumours say is the case, who knows).

    But the fact a driver like him still did not find a team for next year may also mean, that it is not that easy to do it when you quit (or you are fired) without having any plans in mind. Even for a driver of Alonso’s caliber… Both Toyota and Red Bull also have their drivers confirmed already. That may mean nothing, as contracts are there to be ripped off, but if he is only looking for 1 year contract, why would Red Bull or Toyota go through the hassle of getting rid of one of their contracted drivers …

    It looks like if Alonso wants to drive and not to sit out the whole season, he will have to take what is on offer.
