Renault was a suspended two-year ban

Former Renault F1 driver Nelson Piquet Jr., Alonso's team mate, was ordered by Renault management to deliberately crash his car. Nelson Piquet Jr. eventually succeeded in crash his Renault car, which he puts human life (public & personal) at risk. The subsequent introduction of the safety car early in the race on the 13th lap helped Alonso win the race, as he had just made an early pit stop and could move up the field when the other cars had to refuel.

Being a suspended ban, we can still hope to see Alonso driving in Singapore come September 2009.
