Briatore says it’s unlikely to release Alonso earlier than Dec.31

Renault boss Flavio Briatore recently said that it is highly unlikely that Fernando Alonso will get an early release from his contract with Renault.

McLaren said last week that they would make a last bid to get hold of Alonso earlier than December 31.

“We’d like Renault to recognize everything that he’s done for them and release him to come and test for us,” said McLaren’s Martin Whitmarsh. “We have requested it and if they said yes, we could do it.”

However, Renault team boss Flavio Briatore revealed that McLaren’s representatives never spoke to him and insisted that he has not even considered an early release for Alonso.

“I think McLaren got the wrong address,” Briatore said to Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport. “If they wanted Alonso they should have spoken with Renault, not with the journalists.”

“In any case I haven’t yet thought about this possibility, I don’t think it’s so important for the fate of the world. I send my wishes to Fernando to spend a merry Christmas and a relaxing winter, because when spring comes we’ll beat him soundly!”
