    Group Lotus on Wednesday finally unveiled its collaboration for 2011 and beyond with the Renault F1 team.

    It had been expected that the famous British sports car maker, now owned by Malaysia’s Proton, would tie up with Renault either in the form of a title sponsorship or by actually buying some of the Enstone based team.

    A media statement referred to a «strategic alliance» between the two companies, resulting in «the creation of Lotus Renault GP».

    Group Lotus is a new «major equity partner of (Renault team owner) Genii Capital», including title sponsorship of the team through to 2017.

    Renault, meanwhile, is staying in F1 «as a supplier of engines and engineering expertise» and will have «pre-eminent brand exposure on the livery», the statement said.

    But the French carmaker has sold «its remaining shares in the team to Genii».

    Confusingly, the only team called Lotus on the 2011 entry list at present is Tony Fernandes’ entirely-separated team, who through a new engine deal with Renault also intends to be ‘Lotus-Renault’ next season.

    But Group Lotus said it is now making a «complete return» to F1 in 2011 after Fernandes’ outfit used the name «under license» this year.

    That license has been revoked and a naming dispute had erupted, but Wednesday’s statement said Renault F1 «will continue to compete with the Renault chassis name» in 2011.

    «It is a tribute to the excellent work this year by the team in Enstone that we have been able to attract both major sponsorship and new investment for a very bright future,» said Genii’s Gerard Lopez.

    Added Group Lotus’ chief executive Dany Bahar: «We’re well aware that there has been a lot of controversy around the usage of our brand in F1 and I’m delighted to be able to formally clarify our position once and for all — we are Lotus and we are back.»

    Fernandes’ team recently announced that it would revive the iconic black and gold livery in 2011, but now the newly Lotus-owned team is saying its cars will be «black and gold» in 2011.

    Las dudas que tengo son:
    ¿Veremos dos equipos Lotus correr el año que viene?¿Y con los mismos colores?

    ¿Esta venta de Renault F1(no olvidemos que, aunque esté aparte, sigue formando parte de Renault) a Lotus, tendrá repercusiones, alianzas, uniones…en las marcas «de calle»?

    Nota de prensa:

    Group Lotus plc and Genii Capital are pleased to announce a partnership which will see the Renault F1 Team renamed as ‘Lotus Renault GP’ from the start of the 2011 racing season onwards. The association heralds the return of a highly successful Formula 1™ association between Lotus and Renault from the 1980s. Lotus’ racing pedigree and heritage coupled with Renault’s technology in Formula 1™ will set the united team on a path to future success.

    Group Lotus plc will acquire a major equity stake in the team from Genii Capital. The transaction represents a partnership between Group Lotus and Genii Capital and signifies the beginning of a more comprehensive strategic alliance between the two organisations.

    The partnership between Lotus and Genii brings the ability to quickly incorporate new technologies from F1™ cars into Lotus road cars including hybrid technology, Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems (KERS), aero advancements and lightweight materials. Genii, an investment holding company with a portfolio of automotive technologies, bring non-F1™ technologies such as lightweight braking systems, variable compression engine technology and on board software systems to the partnership.

    Group Lotus CEO Dany Bahar said: “I can think of no better platform for automotive brand communications than motorsport and F1™. We’re well aware that there has been a lot of controversy around the usage of our brand in F1™ and I’m delighted to be able to formally clarify our position: We are Lotus, and we are back.”

    Dato’ Sri Mohd Nadzmi Mohd Salleh, Chairman of Proton, Lotus majority shareholder, said: «We know that Group Lotus has much to offer Formula 1™ and vice versa. After careful consideration, we believe this arrangement will be fruitful, both from a commercial and marketing point of view.»

    Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Proton advisor and former Prime Minister of Malaysia, said: «This is an exciting development which delivers strategic benefits to both Group Lotus and Proton. I fully support the partnership.»

    Carlos Ghosn, Chairman and CEO of Renault, commented: “This multi-partner alliance will bring a new dynamic to the team and enable it to compete with the sport’s best from next season.”

    In addition to this, Genii is also offering Proton the ability to leverage on its existing business relationships in Russia and other parts of the world, as a means to expand Proton’s global reach. Through Genii, Proton can also potentially access advanced automotive technologies by virtue of Genii’s association with Mangrove, a venture capital group.

    Gerard Lopez, founding partner of Genii Capital, said: “For Group Lotus, access to Formula 1™ opens up new marketing opportunities and a major platform for business exchanges and development. In this regard, Genii Capital possesses shareholdings in, and direct access to, cutting edge companies in the automotive industry. Our tie-up with Group Lotus and Proton, which will enable its future road car ranges to take advantage of significant new technologies, is a natural step.”

    Lo gracioso es que no hay alianza. Son dos empresas distintas, cada una por su lado, que quieren el mismop nombre las dos. A ver en qué queda, pero estoy seguro de que no habrá 4 coches negros y dorados en la parrilla.

    Pero entonces habría un hueco en la parrilla, quien lo rellena?, que candidato hay para ocupar ese hueco, Epsilon Euskadi?, que para mi hubiese sido mejor opción que Hispania.
