Briatore would love to have Alonso back

Flavio Briatore says he would love to have Fernando Alonso back behind the wheel of a Renault car as speculation continues to cast doubt over the reigning champion's desire to see out his current contract at McLaren.

"I can't deny that I think Fernando is great, but he has a contract with McLaren," Briatore told the Spanish Marca newspaper. "He is a very special driver and we had a great relationship at Renault that was always transparent. Although he signed for McLaren we remain friends.""Of course I'd love to have him in the team, I think everyone would want to have him because he is exceptional," Briatore added. Renault has yet to confirm its drivers for 2008 but is expected to make some kind of announcement mid-September when an option on current driver Giancarlo Fisichella has to be taken or released.
