A nice idea in France

There is talk in France that Sebastien Bourdais might come back from the United States next year to drive for the Renault F1 team - if the team does not sign a deal with Michael Schumacher.

Kimi Raikkonen is expected to move to Ferrari and with Fernando Alonso at McLaren there is no obvious F1 candidate to lead the team. Bourdais would be a good candidate as he is both cheap and French (the French market is still very important to Renault) although his record with Flavio Briatore has not been an easy one.

Bourdais's domination of Champ Car racing is such that there is nothing left for him to achieve as he is already well on his way to a third consecutive title having won the first three races of the season.
