Mild Seven to stay with Benetton
THE FIA has issued the provisional entry list for the 2002 Formula 1 World Championship and the only big surprise is that Mild Seven is still the major sponsor of the Renault Sport team - despite the fact that Renault management had hinted that the team did not want to continue any links with tobacco companies.
The team will be known as "Mild Seven Renault F1" and the cars will be called simply Renaults, in much the same way as Ferrari and Toyota. Jaguar Racing incidentally will continue to run Jaguar-Cosworths.
