Renault F1 boss Cyril Abiteboul says Fernando Alonso is on the manufacturer’s short list for 2021, but the French outfit will take its time to complete its future line-up.
Daniel Ricciardo’s move from Renault to McLaren for next season has left a vacant seat at the Enstone-based squad.
Alonso’s name popped up immediately after the announcement of Ricciardo’s transfer, with pundits speculating on a return of the Spaniard to the team with which he won his two world championship titles in 2005 and 2006.

Abiteboul has now given credence to the hypothesis, but the Renault boss is also looking at other names that could be paired with Esteban Ocon in 2021.
“There could be many drivers [that could replace Ricciardo], as there are great drivers available for next year,” Abiteboul told in an interview with RMC radio.
