When Autosport runs a story it usually turns out to be true. So this may be more than just a rumour. Cosworth is about to return to Formula 1 with a bang – powering half of the F1 grid.
It looks like Max Mosley got all the signatures he needed for go ahead with the Cosworth standard engine program. He needed at least 4 teams to sign up for three-year Cosworth engine deal. The reports are he got five.
It is not such a surprise that all the indpendents – Williams, Force India, Red Bull and Toro Rosso are interested in the economy engine option. The fifth team is said to be Renault…
Renault-Cosworth instead of Benetton-Renault, Williams-Renault, Red Bull-Renault or simply Renault ? Interesting proposition … And what a major coup for Max Mosley this would be …
Reaction by Renault:
“Following speculation that appeared this morning in the Italian press, the ING Renault F1 Team would like to state that the positions of the Team and Renault are in complete accordance to those of the FOTA.
We would like to point out that neither Mr. Briatore nor Renault have spoken to the press regarding this matter before this official press release.”
The above is what media say is reaction from Renault on the Cosworth engines rumours. Help me out here. What is it that they are saying ?
