F1 return on the cards for Alonso

2nd December 2019, 12:57 by Alex Jack

Two-time world champion Fernando Alonso claims he would be "open" to making a comeback to Formula 1 in 2021.

The 38-year-old's immediate goal is to add the Indianapolis 500 title to his list of achievements next year although the Spaniard has admitted he does not yet know which team he will drive for.

However, after next year, former Ferrari and McLaren star Alonso has revealed there are a few factors that could see him make a highly-anticipated return to Formula 1.

"F1 is still a possibility," he told BBC Sport. "The 2021 rules are quite interesting. Maybe it will move things around a bit and make the cars easier to race. If it turns out I miss F1, I am open to coming back.

"Also the driver market is very open for 2021, so there is no hurry to make a decision."
