    It seems like an investment group have purchased Renault's remaining 25% steak in Renault F1 and will rename the team Lotus Renault for 2011!

    So we now have Lotus Renault F1 and Team Lotus. The best thing is, they both plan to race in black and gold! :rolleyes:

    The Lotus in 2010 will also have Renault engines for 2011 because they bought themselves out of the Cosworth deal right? I still expect the new Lotus team to be vastly more competitive than Mike Gasgoynes Lotus

    Correct. Renault finished fifth last season while Team Lotus were 10th although they were arguably the best of the new teams.

    Well as much as i like the current team lotus the renault team has a strong track record so we could see the lotus name back on the top step of the podium. Also Kubica will look awesome in those colours!

    So we're going to have Lotus Renault and Team Lotus-Renault, both in the same livery? Poor Legard!

    They can't change the name of the Renault team without all the teams agreeing -
