Alonso won't close the door on becoming Verstappen's teammate

Fernando Alonso and Max Verstappen currently drive for different teams, with the Spaniard making his return to F1 this season with Alpine. However, could they team up one day?

Though Fernando Alonso admits the chances of seeing him partner Max Verstappen in F1 are unlikely, but the Spaniard would be open to teaming up with the Dutchman in some other form of racing in the future. There is a 16 year age gap between the two drivers, but it's clear there is a mutual respect for one another. When Alonso was asked whether he could imagine himself being Verstappen's teammate, he made it clear that while it may not happen in F1, it could still happen elsewhere. "We still have an opportunity in the future," Alonso told RacingNews365.com and other members of the media. "Maybe not in F1 because I don't think that's a possibility. "But in the future, who knows? Both of us love racing, endurance racing, Le Mans and many things. So it would be nice to one day share a team." Verstappen echoed those sentiments, stating that there are ample opportunities for the duo to work together outside of F1. "Of course it would have been incredibly exciting to be at one team together with him," Verstappen stated. "But like he said, there are also a lot of opportunities outside of Formula 1 later on. "So who knows? It would be be quite cool I think."
