There have been a lot of signals about these two getting closer. Will Caterham be a brand of the Renault-Nissan alliance at some point ? Will the F1 team become Renault's semi official or even official F1 team maybe under the Alpine name ?

Anyway, nice to hear the return of the Alpine brand on the road with some French flair GT being back on highways and who knows, maybe on tracks.

At last, some French non FWD sport car to dream about. OK, there is the Bugatti which is historically and administratively registered as a French marque as a subsidiary of the VW group but that ain't exactly the same.

Great news, Caterham know light weight sports cars, Renault know how to make car parts - at last Renault may have worked out how to use F1 to boost their brand(s)......
