Fernando Alonso says he was "not ready" to say goodbye to racing.

Fernando Alonso says he was "not ready" to say goodbye to racing.

Amid his two-year sabbatical, the 39-year-old made his first official visit to Renault's Enstone headquarters on Monday ahead of his 2021 return.

"I know every corner of this place," said the two-time champion. "Every corridor, every door."

It will be Alonso's third stint at Renault, having also raced for Ferrari and most recently for McLaren in 2018.

"When I left F1, my friends told me 'Finally you can do what you want'. But what I want is to race, so I'm going to keep racing," Alonso is quoted by Marca.

"I like racing too much to stop. I don't know what's on the other side of the door, and while it doesn't scare me, I'm not ready to find out yet. I need a steering wheel in my hands every 15 days."
