A Gag Clause in Alonso's Renault Contract?

Jul 08, 06:41 PM

Rejoice! Fernando Alonso is BACK to Formula 1 and Renault. Let's admit that we all missed ALO's speed, talent & antics in the two years that he was away. Let's hope ALO's payback to Renault is points, podiums, wins and not via meme-worthy radio messages.

Yes, that's the ONE clause that will come handy for Renault IF they are unable to deliver to Fernando Alonso's expectations. None of Renault's previous drivers have been as vocal about the team's inability to deliver a strong package season after season. But we all know that it will be different with the mercurial Alonso - in the media and on radio! He gives his best and doesn't settle for any less in return. Let's see how Renault rise up to the occasion.

But can Alonso-Renault win again in Formula 1? OR will Alonso make up the numbers like Kimi Raikkonen (err!)? Anyone expecting the latter is probably unaware of Alonso's prowess, determination and approach to Motorsport and Formula 1. Join us on this Pits To Podium segment of our show as we welcome the former double World Champion back to Formula 1.

In this episode - F1 is the BIG winner in the Alonso-Renault reunion, why Renault couldn't/didn't wait for a junior driver, why betting on Renault under the new regulations might not be a bad idea after all.
