|No more yellow in 2017?|
(GMM) The works Renault team could be set to change colors for 2017, according to the latest international reports.
El Mundo Deportivo, a Spanish sports newspaper, reports that the currently yellow cars could turn predominantly deep blue next year.
There are rumors Renault is in talks with Movistar, a major Spanish mobile operator, and BBVA, a Spanish banking multinational.
Both companies' corporate images are mainly blue.
The rumors could also re-fire speculation that Renault is interested in securing the services of Spanish driver Carlos Sainz, or the Spanish-speaking Mexican Sergio Perez.
However, Perez is backed by Carlos Slim, whose Telmex company is a direct competitor of Movistar.
The same speculation about Movistar and BBVA's apparent talks with Renault were also reported by Auto Bild, a German publication, as well as France's Auto Hebdo.
