Ok, lets look at - pure hypothetical - positives for KUB in this move, as a fanboy, I must think positive ;) if we assume that is a fact, and it seems to be, so:
-He will be rather number 1 in this team, getting earlier some updates, getting the better startegy for race and so on.
-Renault had a hit, in the "tyre change"-ban, maybe they will have a hit with the refuel-ban. (thats pure "maybe")
-Renaults second drive this year - no comment, we can assume that Alonso knew earlier of his Ferrari-contract, and he doesn't pulled off the real pace of the car (I know, I know, thats a stupid one:))
-This years Renault car is in the "no-diffusor" group, so from the beginning it wasn't the best construction, next year should be different.
-Do you guys heard on last races on any updates in this year Renault car? I can't remember anything like that, maybe they work on the 2010 longer than we think (something like Ferrari, but without announce that)
-After the crash-gate, Renault had two ways, whetever to withdraw like bmw, or to fight to get back the face with good result, it seems they convinced Robert that they go the second way "for sure", especially after his comments that "secure future of the team" is the most important for him.
-If Robert would go for money, or race performance based on this season, he would go to Toyota for sure, they have more money, and better pace this season, I don't think he is stupid, and know more than we, plus he have "insider" information from Alonso who seems a good friend of him.
I know, those arguments are very far-fetched, it would be better, seat nr 2 in macca, williams, or even toyota IMO :-/
