Alonso's Manager Confirms Minardi Deal

Tuesday February 6th, 2001

Fernando Alonso's manager Adrian Campos has confirmed that the young Spanish driver will drive for the European Minardi team this season.

Alonso, who has been linked to European Minardi for several months, is contracted to Renault but will be loaned to Minardi this year, according to Campos.

Campos confirmed: "Fernando has a long term contract with Renault, and he will race with Minardi in 2001."

Benetton Renault managing director Flavio Briatore also confirmed that the Spaniard has an arrangement with the two teams.

"Alonso has a contract," said Briatore yesterday. "If Minardi races this season, then he's racing for them."

European Minardi, who were taken over by Australian businessman Paul Stoddart last week, have refused to confirm the deal, but a spokesperson for the Italian team said an announcement will be made in the next few days.
