Renault, Toyota and BMW really made some good publicity, for Honda that is.

GenII = 100%
Renault = 0%
Renault sold the last retainer as this way i feel that come 2013 when the new engine formula comes arround, they can supply more than 2 teams. However, if Renault wishes to buy back the team, they can do for a small mark up on the shares seemingly, 7% this year, increasing by 1.25% for every season untill the end of 2013. But that part isnt confirmed as this part is more comercially sensitive than anything else.

One other bit of news i just read, Bob Bell is being replaced.. initially i thought this to be bad news but rumoured front-runners to replace Bell are Alain Prost or Eric Boullier:
-Gravity Sport Management President,
-DAMS GP2 Managing & Technical Director,
-A1GP Team France Team Principal,
-Chief Race Engineer to Franck Montagny in World Series by Nissan.
Boullier seems well qualified i think.
