Dacia denies reports of Formula 1 project 20 January, 2014 Colin Kolles The budget Romanian car manufacturer Dacia has distanced itself from reports linking it with a Formula 1 project. The unlikely name was mentioned in connection with Romanian former Force India and HRT boss Colin Kolles, who has reportedly expressed interest in entering a team to fill the vacant eleventh pitlane slot in 2015. Dacia, known for its unspectacular Logan and Duster models, and owned since 1999 by Renault, denied the news. “We know nothing about these reports,” a spokesperson is quoted by the Dutch website Racexpress. “There has been no mention of interest, and time is much too short.” (GMM) Subbed by AJN.
