    This is great news.

    The bad news is that they have stuck with Pastor Crashonado as a driver. I would have thought that Renault have more money than Lotus, and wouldn't have to rely on this b-grade driver's sponsorship money. It would be nice to have someone that can actually drive, instead of letting this guy pay to get a drive. Looks like we will still be seeing "Venezuela" written on the back of the rear spoiler.

    But the last chrash(last round) he had wasn't his fault, does that mean that he's improving

    Normally there is a basis for poor. :- Maldonado Penalty Counter Only 8 of the penalties were not his fault as they related to car failures eg engines and gearboxes.

    Keeping in mind he only started in F1 in 2011

    Great news. Maldonado out, Magnussen in. The Renault team may struggle for points this year, but at least they will finish more races

    Oh that is Jolly Good news!
    I think I shall take the R16 out for a late night thrash on the C511/C513 in celebration!

    The RBR boys might, however, be a bit dirty on Renault if the motors run perfectly for their own team!
