Paris - The Renault Formula 1 team could be set to change colours 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 in 2017.
There are rumours 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 rumours could also re-fire speculation that Renault is interested in securing the services of driver Carlos Sainz or 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.
