No more Mild Seven

Post by Irv the Swerve »

Renault has confirmed Dutch banking giant ING as its new title sponsor for the next three years, replacing the Mild Seven cigarette brand.

The outfit, to be known as the ING Renault Formula 1 Team, will sport Japan Tobacco's colours for the last time in this weekend's Brazilian Grand Prix after 13 years of support through the team's time as Benetton and then as the Renault factory squad.

I think a new paint job will be on the car for 07.

Thats a great picture. It looks like Renault are going back to the early days when they had black,yellow and white. It looks dreadful.

Black beats that hideous baby blue hands down...
I like it better than what's insulting my eyes at every race these days when the camera is showing a Renault.
