Well that rules out Bob Bell as Mr. X...after all it is just a simple process of elimination..

Please do not even think about hiring that Dave guy ..he got kicked out Honda after treating JV like dirt. He is really something like Flav, but not quite as smart. :D

I think this runs counter to Renaults stated commitment to F1 in the future. They shoudl already be concentrating on the 2010 car - 2009 is binned as far as they are concerned. In which case, putting in a temporary management team to see out the season makes no sense. They are only racing to fulfill sponsor exposure requirements, and are losing ING anyway.

The only logic I can make of this is that Renault will sell the team over the closed season, but remain as an engine manufacturer. After all, they only said they wanted to continue making a contribution to motorsport - engine supply does this in spades.

Two points, one to reply to Jose about that "Dave" guy, well lets put things into perspective, David Richards, CEO and majority owner of Pro Drive and Aston Martin! "like Briatore but not as bright", please see my first comment, need I say anymore, oh and by the way, when he was in charge of BAR, they finished 2nd in the world championship! As to the idea that Renault will quit and continue to supply engines, i think that has a lot of merit and makes good sense giving the Enstone operation back to the "private" sector, I know quite a few people in the line of buyers who would jump at the chance, including a current driver or two! :p
