Three stables Formula 1 will be renamed in 2012!

F1 Commission meeting last Thursday in Geneva has approved applications for three of the twelve stables at this time in Formula 1 to change name next season. Changes caused not by the arrival of new sponsors but by phasing with the reality of having teams exchange owner in the last 18 months names.

This is also an opportunity to settle definitively the question of the two teams since Lotus Lotus Team, headed by Tony Fernandes Malay who has recently acquired the English sports car manufacturer Caterham, will free completely the Lotus name to keep only the Caterham name in 2012.

This allows the well to Genii Capital, company owner since the beginning of this season of the Renault F1 Team, to offer a partner, shareholder, Group Lotus, the identity of Lotus. We therefore find on the starting grid in 2012 two Lotus-Renault the former Renault F1 Team and Caterham-Renault two of the former Team Lotus!

The last change concerns the Virgin Racing team. Richard Branson's company is less and less involved in F1, while the Russian manufacturer Marussia sports cars will become the title sponsor and principal shareholder in 2012. Speak Thus Marussia-Cosworth in this case.
