Did anyone else spot the Renault Badges that have suddenly appeared on the nosecone of the RB6 and Vettel and Webber’s visors? (English fail..don’t judge me.)
Renault (apart from being embroiled in a battle in which they are siding with Lotus in preventing Lotus from becoming Lotus) are obviously trying to cash in on the success that Red Bull have had over the last two seasons with their engines… despite the fact that Christian Horner takes every oppotunity to tell the world his engines develop the power of 3 harnessed children.
Hopefully it will be a more permanent and a little more prominent. Red Bull have done Renault a great disservice in moaning about their power deficit (which they ridiculously over-exaggerate) all year instead of bearing in mind its fuel efficiency has been a bonus to them and their engines have carried them to victory after victory (is it Renault’s fault Red Bull still haven’t learned to install the engine properly?).
Thats right it follows their plan to pull out more (or fully) as a full team and just supply engines. I may be wrong but I believe renault have little to do with the currently operating renault f1 team, as such it would be a worthy target for any company wanting to brand a team.
