Alonso for Minardi?

With Alex Yoong expected to stand down from Minardi for the next couple of races, the team is thought likely to ask Renault Sport if it is willing to loan Fernando Alonso for the next couple of events. Alonso drove for Minardi in 2001 and so would quickly reintegrate into the team. The idea would also give the Spaniard the chance to get some more racing experience before he becomes a full-time racer next year with Renault.

It is anticipated that Yoong may return at the end of the year to keep the team's Malaysian sponsors happy.
