Grosjean admits Renault buys Lotus

Published

on

Romain Grosjean has admitted his fingers are still crossed that rumours Renault is looking to buy back Lotus turn out to be true.

Earlier in July, amid speculation the French carmaker and the Enstone team are closing on a deal, Frenchman Grosjean admitted the prospect of driving for a works team headed by F1 legend Alain Prost was “exciting”.

“The rumours about the return of Renault is something pretty cool and definitely something that is tempting for me,” he said.

Now in Hungary, the rumours are swirling with even greater strength, but Grosjean insisted that does not mean they are right.

“The nature of rumours is that they are often wrong,” he told RMC Sport.

“But it is true that we have heard a lot about the proposed acquisition of the Lotus team by Renault,” the Lotus driver added.

“It would be a great project,” Grosjean said. “It is important for F1 to have another manufacturer and a French team would also be important for the French fans.

“If we can put a French driver there too it would be even more beautiful,” he smiled. “After that, the only thing remaining would be to hear La Marseillaise on the podium.” (GMM)
