Name Changes
http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/formula_...579228.stm

So Lotus is now Caterham, Lotus is now not Renault and something about Virgin which no one cares about.

But wait Lotus, the one that was Renault but not a Renault, may not be a Lotus after all, something to do with GenII or the so such.

Perhaps we won't have any Loti next year.

Happy now?

so all that's left now is Group Lotus to collapse, Tony Fernandes to buy it and then he can rename his team again as Lotus Caterham Renault...

...and no jail time.

It's not that hard. The team currently called Lotus Renault will next year be called Lotus and the team currently called Team Lotus will next year be called Caterham.

This is actually in some doubt. The GenII - Group Louts deal is not done. GL don't "own" any of the team and are just, currently a sponsor. Reverse buyout/ins are yet to happen. Proton are claiming they know nothing.

They probably can't sell merchandise, someone else owns the rights to them...isn't that where all this started?! Smile
