Renault Or Lotus?

This is another shot of an F1 race car that I took during the Formula 1 Expo held at the Austin Convention Center this past weekend.  It may be a French made Renault racer or it could be a Lotus.  I guess I need to pay more attention to the signs by the cars. I don't think Renault makes F1 racers anymore and from what I've seen on the internet, Renault has their name on Lotus cars.  Hell, I don't know..  All I know is that Renault is a French car maker and its name is on this car.  Maybe some of my European friends out there can help me out here. I don't know a lot about F1 racing, but I do know that it is exciting and that the cars that zip around the track are the best in the world. And, you have to admit, it's a pretty cool looking racer!  I DO know they are bigger than Indy cars which is surprising.  I always thought everything in America was bigger, but Europe has us beat in the race car size "arena".


  1. Renault build engines for F1 cars. The Red Bull Racing car sitting next to this one had a Renault engine too.

  2.  That makes sense!  Thanks, Dave!
