Renault is running a new line-up for the 2020 season, with Daniel Ricciardo and Nico Hülkenberg now replaced by Esteban Ocon, a young Frenchman who was small as a Mercedes last year.
The pair will only be together for one season as Ricciardo leaves at the end of the year, confirming to McLaren.
Renault team boss Cyril Abiteboul has recently left Sebastian Vettel, Ferrari, Valtteri Bottas, who has not yet been tied to Mercedes, but mostly the French brand’s self-educated youngsters among the nominees, while Ocon sees two-time world champion Fernando looking for an F1 return. preferably at the corps.
“I’ve been asked about this many times during the forced break, but it’s always the same answer, and it’s independent of the team’s decision, only my personal opinion: I have a great relationship with Fernando, my only helmet changed comes from him, and he was the one who defeated Schumacher at the time. , because of which I fell in love with Formula One. So I don’t know if he’s coming to the team or not, but I’d clearly be very happy if he came back as my teammate, ”the Red Bull Ringen said on Thursday.
Although Ricciardo is leaving the team, he was also asked who would choose the four-time champion Vettel or Alonso instead – the Australian replied:
“Alonso because I don’t have direct experience with him yet, so I would choose Fernando, let’s say I only spent 12 months with Sebb (2014 at Red Bull), which flew away very quickly, so I wouldn’t mind.”
