Fernando Alonso gets first test with McLaren

The final day of Formula One tests at Jerez this year has produced a surprise with Fernando Alonso taking to the track for his first run for his new team McLaren Mercedes.

Alonso was not expected to test for his new team until his contract with Renault expired on December 31. The double World Champion has not been seen on track in any of the three sessions that have taken place since the last race of the season in Brazil in October.

After a meeting between McLaren and Renault chiefs, Alonso is debuting on the final day of the Jerez test, running in a car free of any sponsorship logos and wearing plain overalls and a blank helmet.

"Fernando asked me to test one day with his new team to acclimatise himself to the car," Renault boss Flavio Briatore said. "We enjoy a very good relationship and considering his work and his fabulous achievements these past two years with the double world titles in 2005 and 2006, we decided to give him this opportunity."

Alonso gave thanks to Renault for allowing him to take up the chance of a drive with his new team.

"I have a strong relationship with the Renault F1 team," he said. "I would like to thank Flavio and Renault to have agreed to my request to test one day with my new team."
