    As I read the report, the cooperation was specifically limited to small car platforms.
    But who knows?

    I think you are right. But to me the Renault F1 team is only one excuse away from being sold to Stefan GP/Ken Anderson/<insert your favorite moneybag here>.

    You know I felt that way too but the way the team never seems to quit and keeps punching above its weight (and budget). I don't see them pulling out unless it is an absolute necessity.

    Didn't they already sell 75% of the team to an investor?

    The 2 companies will apparently exchange 3% each of their shares to co-operate on a small venicle between the Smart and the Clio.

    Far from a merger!!

    Mercedes was previously partner with Chrysler, Mitsibishi, and even Hyundai, I believe.

    Renault is with Nissan, Sanyung, Lada and Dacia.
