The internet reacts: 'How long before Renault realizes it's leaving again?'

Today, Wednesday July the 8th, Renault announced what everyone expected: Fernando Alonso returns to Formula 1. The Spanish world champion will take over the seat of Daniel Ricciardo next year, who in turn will leave for McLaren. Of course the announcement generated a lot of reactions and we have listed a selection of them below.

Positive sounds with a critical note

Most reports from some prominent people in and around the sport are positive. Carlos Sainz is happy to see him again and so is Chase Carey from Liberty Media. On the other hand there are also critical/other sounds to be heard, because how long will Alonso stay with Renault Matt Gallagher wonders with a wink. Jake Dennis rightly raises a point, because what exactly is the driver academy of Renault for? Anyway, the reactions below.
