Alonso has been keen to diversify his motorsport career accolades, winning the Le Mans 24 Hours with Kazuki Nakajima and Sebastien Buemi back in 2019 as well as also triumphing in 2018.
Verstappen, meanwhile, has been clear that he doesn't plan on spending his entire career in F1, and his sim racing passion is well documented with the Dutchman spending his spare time competing in a range of series online.
Alonso's Le Mans hopes
"In the future, for sure, if there is any opportunity," Alonso replied when asked about the possibility of teaming up with Verstappen for Le Mans, as quoted by RacingNews365.com.
"We are very good friends," Alonso continued.
"We are always in contact. I would love to do Le Mans – if I do Le Mans once again – with Max."
Alonso was clear that he feels teaming up with Verstappen for an attempt at Le Mans would be a privilege.
