Ecclestone questions Renault's silence

While the acquisition of Lotus F1 Team by Renault is still awaited, Bernie Ecclestone remains cautious about the future of the British team and the French engine manufacturer. If the structure ofenstone has obtained several deadlines from the High Court of London to rebalance its financial situation, the Losange remains desperately silent three days before the ultimatum.

“Renault will apparently take over Lotus. I say apparently. This is what is planned but I don’t know if it is signed”, explained Bernie Ecclestone to Reuters agency. "If they don't take over the case or if they don't put some money in before Monday, it won't happen. It's strange that a company like Renault needs so much time to make a decision. »

The lack of confirmation would be due to negotiations still underway concerning the status of Renault, which would like to be considered a historic team and benefit from the income that goes with it. “They waited for a gesture from us to give them a reason to act and that's what we did two weeks ago. I do not know more ", added Bernie Ecclestone who is certainly impatiently awaiting the decision of Renault-Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn.
