Renault names Kovalainen as Alonso's Replacement

Renault Formula One Team have named Heikki Kovalainen as their replacement for Fernando Alonso, who will race for McLaren in 2007.

Renault had appointed Kovalainen as their back-up driver for the 2006 season but he has been testing for the team since 2004 as part of their driver development programme.

"I am thrilled to get the opportunity to show the team what I can do,"

"We are not losing a driver who has won the world title - we are starting a new story with a future champion"
Flavio Briatore
