Jul.24 (GMM) Heikki Kovalainen has revealed he would not be disappointed if Lotus switches to Renault power for the 2011 season.
Not only is the Finn linked with a possible switch to Renault, his current team Lotus is reportedly in talks to break its Cosworth contract and be powered by French-made engines next year."If that happens," he told Turun Sanomat newspaper, "it is certainly a better option for us."Renault has more experience," said the 28-year-old, "even if Cosworth has not been bad. The reliability at least in my car has been one hundred per cent."Kovalainen, now 28, started his career with Renault, initially as a test driver and then by making his grand prix debut in 2007."I spent a lot of time with them," he said. "I know the guys and it would be a nice option if the team (Lotus) ends up with them."
