Renault's recent upturn in form, however, with Ricciardo only out-scored by Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas in the last five races, has whetted Alonso's appetite for 2021 when the team rebrands itself as Alpine.
It is interesting how Alonso holds the media in the palm of his hand. He was beaten by the rookie Hamilton and hasn't achieved much since yet you never hear a word of objectivity from the motoring press.
He was NOT beaten by Hamilton. That is a lie! Eaqual points! Hamilton would not be were he is today if he hadn't been driving an unbeatable car.
