The only thing now missing from Fernando Alonso's move to Ferrari for the 2010 season is a press release.

As the speculation steadily becomes fact, Renault's new managing director Jean-Francois Caubet on Sunday all but confirmed that the 27-year-old Spaniard is now set to depart the French team.

"We will miss him but he will miss us," he told French television TF1 in Singapore.

"No enough," he smiled. "At least 20."
