Did anyone else notice the big LADA sponsor mark on the new RENAULT F1 car. Now I learned to drive in a LADA and I know what they are like, But come on how bad is the money problems in F1 if RENAULT need to be sponsored by LADA?

Perhaps they missed out the "U" and this should read "Lauda" Wink

Not that difficult to work out as their second driver is Vitaly Petrov who is Russian,
So it would make sense to have a Russian sponsor on board.
And Renault have sold most of their shares in the team..

Well, Ferraris are Fiats anyway. So why not sponsorship by Lada? Fiat/Lada would be bosom buddies if they were people! grin-dark.jpg

Lada is part owned by Renault - and with 2 east european drivers it makes sense to make use of the Lada brand.

As CB says, it's no different to Ferrari having the Fiat badge on the car.

Lada has also participated in the World Touring Car Championship, so you could say they have a racing pedigree! Grin

I would of thought that it was to do with their Russian Driver, Vitaly Petrov, and a government sponsorship. They are trying to set up a St Petersburg GP.
