In the days before the news becomes official in Paris, sources report that Renault's F1 management team is shaping up. Following the Lotus takeover, sources say leading directors of Renault Sport F1 will be Jerome Stoll, Cyril Abiteboul, Thierry Bollore and Patrice Ratti.
And it is expected that Frederic Vasseur, who until now has run the GP2 team ART alongside FIA president Jean Todt's son Nicolas, will be the Enstone team's racing director. On the technical side, Bob Bell, Nick Chester, Alan Permane and Remi Taffin will work together, while quadruple world champion Alain Prost will retain his mainly ambassadorial role. (GMM)
