If you were an F1 wunderkind like Fernando Alonso, who not only broke Schumacher's streak but also became the youngest F1 champion ever, what kind of company car would you want? Over at Renault, we'd imagine the best they could do for El Nano was an old R5 Turbo 2, but now racing for McLaren, he's just taken delivery of a 650-hp Mercedes-McLaren SLR 722, which sports a zero-to-60 time of 3.6 seconds. We're not sure whether the car was part of his contract, but of course it should have been if it wasn't. We're just wondering how many cases of Red Bull he turned down.
