Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

Renault F1 team to be renamed Lotus Renault GP in 2011

http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport2/hi/moto...ne/9267715.stm

So 2 teams will have Lotus in their name and both will have a black and gold livery...

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

The problem with Monza is escaping afterwards - the journey out of Monza back to the motorway is hell. The drive along the motorway to Milan is hell. Milan to the Gottard is hell.

I'd not bother - stay another night and head back Monday.

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

Just one question guys, do you know if the Renault and the Lotus team are making one only team, or Renault is only giving them their engines? I can only find that information in Autosport and is not so clear..

The idiot never even told his team.

I disagree, last time I drove, I took the back streets of Monza, stopped at a nice cafe somewhere north east of Milan and finally drove via San Bernadino. Took a bit longer, but no way was it stress.

its up to the courts to decide, rumour was that lotus cars (proton) stipulated that renault couldn't sell team lotus engines as part of there deal to take them over.

But they are 2 totally different teams and both will be on the grid, weather team lotus is there under a different name or with different engines remains to be seen

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

The FIA lifted the ban on Team Orders.

http://www.planetf1.com/news/18227/6...on-team-orders

I wonder if Jensen Button will now leave F1 as he said he would leave if team orders returned.

All we need now is for Cablecom to start offering BBC1 HD (instead of just BBC HD) - or for the BBC to put F1 on BBC2 + BBC HD.
