"The signing of Fernando Alonso is part of Groupe Renault's plan to continue its commitment to F1 and to return to the top of the field".

By the end of 2018, Alonso had grown exhausted of the demands of F1 and a lack of results, but his time away from it since then has given him new motivation to have one last assault.

And Ocon is relishing the chance to make Renault a major force in F1 once more.

However, with that seat now filled by Alonso, the Shanghai native will have to look elsewhere for an F1 drive next year. On the basis of time alone Abiteboul wanted a firm strategy in place for the future in order to provide stability for everyone involved in the project.

Alonso won his world titles with Renault way back in 2005 and 2006 but still looked sharp driving an uncompetitive vehicle during his last season with McLaren in 2018 before walking away.

Two-time champion Fernando Alonso of Spain will make a return to Formula One next year with Renault. "I think I come back more complete than I was before".

Employment rebounds by 30K in Saskatchewan
Saskatchewan and Manitoba saw increases of around 30,000 while Alberta saw almost 92,000 jobs added in June. Saskatchewan is now at 92.6 per cent of its pre-pandemic levels of employment in February.

Alonso has competed in 311 grands prix, winning 32 of them, but has not tasted victory in more than seven years and last stepped on the podium in 2014. He finished runner-up in the title race three times with the famed Italian manufacturer before joining McLaren in 2015. It has gone from a points scorer, to a race victor, to a world champion as its big-name driver.

Vettel faces an uncertain future after Ferrari announced the German would leave at the end of the year and be replaced by Spaniard Carlos Sainz, who grew up with Alonso as his role model.

Alonso will be the oldest driver next year if his former Ferrari teammate Kimi Raikkonen, already 40 and now with Alfa Romeo, decides to stop. Their progress this winter gives credibility to the objectives for the 2022 season and I will share all my racing experience with everyone from the engineers to the mechanics and my team-mates. I am aware of the things that will come in 2021, of the difficulties that lie ahead, but also of the attractive and exciting challenge of trying to improve and create a good atmosphere ahead of 2022 in the team.

McLaren's Lando Norris, third in Austria last weekend, was only one-year-old when Alonso started racing at now-defunct Minardi in 2001.

F1 Chief Executive Chase Carey said the Spaniard's return was "great news".

"We know there is lots of work for him and for us, but we are on a mission".
