Renault would like to carry out an extensive test program with the participation of Fernando Alonso this year – behind the wheel of a car this year and 2018 …
Cyril Abiteboul, team leader: “Now we are developing a program for Alonso. We knew that he would join us in the second part of the season, because he played in the Indy 500, so we were in no hurry.
We are forming a program in which there can be tests driving a car in 2018. He would like to spend two to four days behind the wheel, and we are working on that. These will be tests in the Middle East that we are preparing for our young riders.
Perhaps we will use the remaining shooting days, especially since Renault would like to shoot the car on the track while it is in this livery.
At the end of the season, there will be youth tests in Abu Dhabi, but we would like to work with the young pilots of our program there ”.
