Toyota ‘interested’ in Alonso – Howett

Mon, 8 October 2007, 01:06

Toyota has openly declared its intention to try to unite Fernando Alonso with one of its single seaters for the 2008 season.

Amid the Spaniard’s almost certainly untenable position at McLaren, Toyota president John Howett joined Renault counterpart Flavio Briatore in publicly declaring the Japanese giant’s interest in Alonso.

“Toyota would be very interested, if he should be available,” Howett is quoted as saying by the news agency Sport-Informations-Dienst.

The Briton added, however, that Toyota has not yet held detailed discussions with the 26-year-old.
