Alonso to start Renault testing

Fernando Alonso, double F1 world champion, returned this week to familiar territory, joining the Renault engineers to discuss the next grand prix season. After the McLaren Mercedes unhappy year, the 26-year-old was at his old home - French firm`s HQ in Enstone, Oxfordshire.

Even tough Alonso won`t run in the brand new R28 until January 22, he will test a variant of last year`s car, with no traction control, in the upcoming few days.
