Fernando Alonso open to 2021 F1 return

Fernando Alonso says he would be open to a return to Formula One in 2021 if the right opportunity presented itself.
Alonso left F1 at the end of 2018 after four frustrating years at McLaren without a victory or podium appearance. The Spaniard, who won his F1 world titles in 2005 and 2006, has turned his attention to other pursuits outside of F1 since, winning the Le Mans 24 Hours with Toyota in 2018.

Alonso is set to participate in the Dakar Rally in January 2020 and will then set his sights on winning the Indy 500 at the third attempt -- he led for a spell on his debut at the Brickyard in 2017, but ultimately failed to finish following a Honda engine issue. On his return last year a catalogue of McLaren errors in the build-up meant he failed to qualify for the race itself.

Find him slightly arrogant... Not to say I don't think he's got skill - he does.

Here's hoping it's a three way race next year and that McLaren keeps on improving.

Wonder how much will change though with all focus shifting to 2021.

Chrash Stappen? A crybaby that likes to bump into other racers when they pass him
He's grown up a lot compared to the Verstappen of 18 months ago.

The aggressive driving he and Shirleyarebringing to F1 is great entertainment, a shame that Le Clerc has the personality of a plank and this passive aggressive serial killer psychopath thing about him.

Mclaren ended the year on a very positive note. Hopefully they do come back to you string again.

They used to be in my team in the hakkinen days.

Used to??!!!

Traitor! You keep with your team, you support them no matter what. You don't just switch because they have had 10-15 years of bad luck.

I do hope the chaps in red have started a Christmas list.

For sure, it is almost like you are watching somebody else race.
