The former Ferrari chief is now the head of Lamborghini, but he made an appearance in the Monza paddock last weekend.
When asked about Alonso’s difficult situation at McLaren-Honda and his deliberations over 2018, Domenicali said of his former driver: “It is clearly a difficult situation he is in.
“It’s not easy for him to make a decision. But Fernando certainly deserves the best — he’s very great, we all know that.
“I hope he can chose a good option and get it right because he deserves it,” the Italian told the Spanish sports newspaper AS.
Domenicali says he is happy with his post-F1 life as the Lamborghini chief, but he remains involved with the FIA at the single seater commission.
Not just that, another Volkswagen brand – Porsche – is now strongly linked with a 2021 foray as F1 engine supplier.
A source at Liberty Media said: “Stefano belongs in F1, and will return to F1.”
