Abiteboul describes Alonso as a shark as Renault prepare for his arrival

Fernando Alonso will return to the Renault team in 2021. The Spaniard returns after missing the last two years to pursue other paths in motorsport. His new boss, Cyril Abiteboul has been describing his attacking instinct.

The good performance of the team with the current car in the hands of Daniel Ricciardo has put Renault in a stronger position than when the signing of Alonso was announced. Alonso will arrive in place of Ricciardo but could be expected to lead the team. His new boss, Abiteboul has compared the Spaniard to a shark. “Fernando is like a big shark: As soon as he starts to feel the blood, he wants to attack," Abiteboul told Racer.com .

As attention switched to the performance of the car, Abiteboul revealed that a lot of performance is going to come from it in 2021.

“We actually have found out that, despite the limitation from the homologation and the token system, there is quite a lot of performance that is going to come from the 2021 car," added Abiteboul.
