There's a persistent rumour that Alonso did know about the planned crash in advance but nothing more than that (at present). Everything I read about Alonso's time(s) at Renault suggest that they liked him even if they couldn't get him to provide the feedback about the car that his team-mates did. Their liking may have something to do with the two championships he delivered for them despite the car not being very good and at a time when Ferrari were so dominant.
I believe that rumour and believe that Falvio saved Fernado's carrear by taking the heat. I aslo think thier liking had a lot to do with Falvio and Fernado being best buds along with the professional relationship. If I'm not mistaken Fernado was Falvio's best man.
