Eric Boullier: We will be running under a British licence now. It means that if we win, we will play the British national anthem.

The team was - and is - no more Renault than lotus. It is a unique racing team, with no links to road car development. The only determining factor is who is funding it. It used to be Renault, now lotus. Therefore it is perfectly logical and reasonable to change from french to British ownership on the license.

P/S it is perhaps a moot point anyway, since as much as some would like, unfortunately i can't imagine we will be hearing the anthem on this teams behalf in 2011!

I would imagine (given time) there will be development filtering through to Group Lotus' road cars.

You may hear the British anthem? Enstone are a quality outfit, as is a certain Mr Kubica.

Hmmm.. I see lots of people supporting Renault because Robert Kubica is the driver. javascript:insertTextCursor('comment',%20':-o')

What if Kubica is not driving for Renault? will you be still supporting Renault?

"It means that if we win, we will play the British national anthem.", Dont you mean the English national anthem?, Scotland and Wales already have their own anthem.

When did England get their own National Anthem? GSTQ is the British anthem - but as previously stated it's unlikely to be played too often for this team.

I havent a clue when England got their own national anthem but what i do know is that Scotland and Wales have their own anthems and it should be respected.
