At the end of 2018, Fernando Alonso stepped away from McLaren and Formula 1 for good.

However, it appears that Liberty Media have realized that the Spaniard could be a real crowd-puller, and want him to return to the grid.

Reports have emerged that the Formula 1 owners are pushing Mercedes to take on Alonso as Lewis Hamilton’s replacement for 2021, should the Brit eventually choose to sign for Ferrari.

German publication Auto Bild claim Liberty are actively pursuing Alonso and see an opportunity after Hamilton’s reported contact with Ferrari.

This news comes after Red Bull advisor Helmut Marko admitted that Liberty had previously pushed them to take on the double world champion.
