When the double Formula 1 world champion Fernando Alonso popping unexpectedly up in the paddock by virtue of its role as a 'McLaren-ambassador', runs the rumors quickly.
For the time preparing the spaniard out for the next edition of the Dakar Rally, just as he also is expected to attempt the Indianapolis 500 yet again. But there are forces that want the spaniard back in the sport.
Not least with his worshippers in the south of Europe and the ditto in the pressekorpset. Even has the 38-year-old kept the door open for a comeback, if he could get a competitive seat.
According to the BBC's Fernando Alonso and his management in recent weeks offered to both Ferrari and Red Bull, where there will be a seat vacant for 2020. The answer should have been repellent ...
With both teams, there is a marginal chance that there is open space. It happens, it is difficult to find arguments for why they should hire an aging and løntung running, which has a habit of insisting on being the number one on the team and leave it in ruins.

In addition, they have Max Verstappen as the clear ones. A hiring Alonso would be entertaining, but it's the same as asking for trouble.
That leaves Ferrari.

Gradually, it is an open secret in the paddock that Sebastian Vettel would like to return to the Red Bull a day. As the German are losing the grip of the Ferrari, while the young Charles Leclerc rays, aired the theories of both an unexpected career-stop or a switch.
But as long as Max Verstappen at Red Bull it makes no sense. Why escape from the Leclerc bank to replace it with Verstappen-bank?
Even if there opens up a possibility of the italians, has Alonso's equal in the load. He was not on good terms with the team, since he left after the 2014 season. With Charles Leclerc has the yet future star and must rather, in the long term use a reliable number two.
