There was excitement in the Formula 1 world today when a former World Champion made his first outing in a Formula 1 car for some time. The Renault team has turned to the ace after a turbulent period for the Enstone-based team, which has recently seen a change of ownership.
Some have questioned the choice of driver. He has been out of Formula 1 for a while, and despite his championship credentials he has produced variable results more recently. However, he showed immense pace in the early part of his career, and it is hoped that he can rekindle that form for his comeback.
