Would look a much better livery if Total also blended in with the black/gold theme.

Oh gosh, I'm bored of all these Lotus arguments and 'Lotus' teams. Sleep Sleep

Lets be frank, 'Lotus' as a brand is worth about as much as Millets is. All they do is produce one or two cars and are built in Norfolk - really glamorous and prestigious!

I mean nobody has cared about Lotus not being in F1 for 15 years, now suddenly the brand is in shit-hot demand. Out of interest, the Lotus-Renault thing (with Group Lotus) is likely to be a bigger success then the non Lotus Group team will be. They will have the foundations and resources of Renault, which will mean they can be competitive from the outset. With a lead driver like Kubica and the finance in place for upcoming years - the team is in a good position.

But what's the point of the non-Lotus Group team? Any enthusiast will surely want to support the team where Lotus are actually involved? Not just a team called 'Lotus' for the sakes of it.

I might enter F1 and call myself Ferrari, even though Ferrari are not involved. Rolling Eyes

Renault now own none of the team, the team is owned by something called gini (no idea on the spelling), Lotus (hethel) is the sponsor, the team is still know as renault, and renault are the engine suppliers.

So it's

Hmm, so two Lotus liveries from different era's.

Renault will be officially known as ‘Renault Sport Technologies’ in 2011 – hinting at the manufacture’s specialisation into making, developing and supplying engines. And also making KERS units as well.

I think the Group Lotus takeover of Renault is fantastic for the actual team. Ignoring the whole naming row for a moment, the Enstone team performed brilliantly in 2010 and were far better then in 2007, 2008 or the dreadful 2009. The 2010 car was almost a front-running car in some races and a consistent high points scorer, now, with solid finance in place and a driver like Kubica – the team actually could have a very positive future. The team’s ownership and name may alter, but many of the staff who won back-to-back world championships in 2005 and 2006 still remains with the team.

wonder what will happen with team orders, getting the slow lotus cars to hold up others while letting the others fast lotus cars past ?
