Ronald to drive for Renault?

The Internet is filled with people with evil senses of humour and the arrival of the new Renault, with its garish colour scheme resulted in someone deciding that Ronald McDonald would be a good team member. That may not be as silly as it sounds if ING does decide to leave at the end of the current season. And who best to drive for the team? Well, Ronald might have trouble getting his feet in the cockpit but Sebastien Bourdais would be a good fit. He's French, something Renault management would love to see, and he was sponsored by McDonalds for four years in Champ Car - with much success. The only problem is that Bourdais was never very keen on being managed by Flavio Briatore - which was why he ended up in the United States in the first place.
