Alonso would consider 'great' F1 2020 drive offer

Alonso would consider 'great' F1 2020 drive offer

His return to test a 2019 vehicle raised questions over his F1 future and when asked by Autosport if the test was about keeping himself sharp for a potential race return, Alonso said: "No".

He will be driving the MCL34, but his programme will be dictated by Pirelli, as the running is part of McLaren's duties to support the Italian company's tyre development.

It means McLaren only need to dedicate half a day of the post-Spanish Grand Prix test to a young driver, allowing Sainz and Norris to split the remaining time between them.

"I said previous year "bye-bye" and it was because I felt this chapter was already complete - and I achieved in Formula One a lot more than I had dreamed".

"The job is not finished though, I want my first points of the season, so now it's time to focus on the race", said the Spaniard.

Guaido’s top aide detained on suspicion of plotting terror attack - interior minister
Today's action designating BANDES and its subsidiaries follows a determination by Secretary of the Treasury, Steven T. On January 23 Venezuelan National Assembly Speaker Juan Guaido proclaimed himself as the country's acting president.

Since departing Formula 1 full-time Alonso has continued preparations for the Indianapolis 500, raced in the World Endurance Championship, and also tested Toyota's Hilux that it competes with at Dakar.

"But if there is a fabulous opportunity (to return), then I would think about it".

On Tuesday, Sainz and Lando Norris will split the running for McLaren's usual test programme with Norris getting a full day in the auto the day before. Coming back is not in the plan.

The Spaniard left the sport at the end of 2018 after a frustrating four seasons with McLaren, in search of new challenges such as trying to win the Indy500. I think the team decided this was the best moment and not taking time from the race drivers to develop the vehicle. On face value, it holds little interest for a two-time world champion, but Alonso said he hopes to help McLaren understand its vehicle. "It might be different if I was sitting at home on the sofa".

"But if something happens and a great opportunity arrives I probably will consider it - I don't close doors 100 per cent".
