Not too much news today. Hispania have announced a deal with Juan Villalonga, a Spanish Businessman who’s good at getting good sponsors. It’s nice to see this fledgeling Spanish team starting to move forward to 2011 with purpose now, after a slow season. Hopefully, Villalonga will bring HRT the sponsors they need to make a good car that can compete for points next year.
Meanwhile, doubt remains over Lotus next year. If there’s a Lotus name on track, it may be related to the current Renault team, rather than Lotus Racing! It will be a shame for the Malaysian team to lose the Lotus name, if they do so. Who knows what name they will come up with instead? However, this battle is currently in court in Malaysia, so we will have to see what the ruling is.
