    Post Alonso signs with Renault ! breaking news

    Emerging reports confirm that Fernando Alonso has signed a two-year contract with the Renault F1 Team, with which he won a pair of world titles before defecting to a tumultuous and disappointing year with McLaren.

    The contract, according to Spanish newspaper El Mundo, will make Alonso one of the top-paid drivers currently in F1 at a staggering $50 million per season (According to the Wikipedia, Kimi Räikkönen makes $51 million/year). The deal is also reported to include minimal obligations towards Renault's sponsors, an exit clause should Alonso wish to terminate early, and clear, defined #1 status for Alonso over his team-mate.

    So the real news item then will be who #2 will be. I think it'd be fantastic if McLaren fielded a Hamilton-Kovalainen team, as it's IMO clear Kovalainen is the real deal and was let down by the ride in 07. It'd be great if he left Renault and they got Alonso back with Giancarlo, as those two have yielded good results in the past also.

    Wonder how much he would have gotten if he won the championship this season.
