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.

Financial backing

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.
