According to the Spanish journalist Albert Fabrega, on October 13, Alonso will take advantage of the shooting day to test-drive Renault's RS20 this season at the Circuit of Catalonia. At the same time, Alonso will get a half-day trial opportunity for Renault's 2018 F1 car to further familiarize himself with F1 cars.
After announcing the signing of Alonso, the Renault team has been looking for an opportunity to familiarize Alonso with F1 cars in advance. Recently Alonso conducted a large number of simulator tests at the fleet factory. Renault hopes that the FIA will allow Alonso to participate in the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix for young drivers to test the car, but the 39-year-old Alonso is not only slightly embarrassed to participate in the young driver test, but also needs two months later.
Renault team leader Abtoble confirmed to Sky Sports that they have been helping Alonso get familiar with F1 cars as soon as possible.
"We are working on a project to help him re-familiarize with F1," Abi Tobull admitted, "This project is scheduled for the second half of the season, so we are not in a hurry. This project includes the use of 2018 cars;
“我们正在努力帮助他重新熟悉F1，” Abi Tobull承认，“该项目计划在本赛季的下半年进行，因此我们并不着急。该项目包括使用2018年的赛车;
"Alonso hopes that the test time will be between 2-4 days and we are considering it. Later this year, young drivers will test the RS18 in the Middle East. There is also a shooting day. We have not yet used this opportunity, as long as we still use the Renault brand, We are willing to use this opportunity," Abitobull said.
Alonso also recently revealed that Renault's first contact with him on returning to F1 took place in June 2019. They talked about the possibility of Alonso joining Renault for the third time in a relaxed meeting.
