Flavio Briatore believes that Fernando Alonso will stay with Renault for the 2009 season.
Over the past few weeks, there have been plenty of rumours surrounding the Spanish driver, his current contract with Renault, and whether he will move to a new team for the 2009 F1 season. The rumours are not helped by Alonso himself, who has made no secret of the fact he wants to drive another championship-winning car next year and if that means swapping teams, he will consider it. Despite this, Briatore believes that Alonso will remain at Renault.
“I think he will stay,â€ Briatore said to Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport. “He is racing very well although he has missed out on a lot ofpoints. We have less than we deserve.â€
