Williams F1 has become the second team in as many years to reject Cosworth as their engine suppliers and seek a partnership with Renault.  Last year it was Team Lotus (Tony Fernandes’ team) that broke its contract with Cosworth after just one year to sign a deal with Renault.  That deal has not done much for Team Lotus that continues to languish at the back of the field.  Now in a move that has been anticipated for sometime now, Williams have signed a deal for engine supply with Renault.  This is however different from the Team Lotus situation for in the past in the 1990s Williams and Renault produced some amazing cars that simply decimated competition.  The Williams Renault FW 15 is still considered to be the best ever Formula1 car that is loaded with technology.  So Williams is not a Team Lotus and their renewed partnership with Renault is likely to rekindle a great deal of nostalgia and expectations.  However, both Williams and Renault have played down the possibilities that the partnership would bring.  The year 2012 could be the one that sees Williams returning to winning ways.  Fingers crossed.
