  returned to Formula One as a team in 2002 when it completed its takeover and rebranding of the UK-based team previously known as Benetton (and before that, Toleman). Under the Renault F1 Team guise the team won the Drivers' and Constructors' championships in 2005 and 2006. At the end of 2009, the Renault car company sold a 75% stake in the team to the Genii Capital investment company. At the end of 2010, it sold its remaining 25% share to Genii, which then decided to enter into an alignment with Group Lotus. The team will compete in the 2011 season under the name Lotus Renault GP. The team continues to be coordinated from its UK base at Enstone, Oxfordshire where the chassis are designed and built. Engines are manufactured at Renault's facility at Viry-Châtillon near Paris. Renault has also supplied engines to other teams, including Team Lotus (1980s), Benetton and Williams teams in the 1990s. As an engine supplier, Renault has contributed to six driver's world cham992–1997 and 2010) as engine supplier for Benetton, Williams and Red Bull. The engine supply has continued during periods when Renault was not active as a constructor in its own right.pionships (1992, 1993, 1995, 1996, 1997, 2010) and seven constructor's world championships (1In 2010, Renault sold a majority stake in the team to Genii Capital, a Luxembourg based investment company.] However Renault still retained a 25% share in the team and continued as an engine supplier. On 5 November 2010, Autosport reported that Renault was poised to scale back its involvement in 2011 and become only an engine supplier, with the team closing in on a tie-up with Lotus Cars to buy its 25% stake in the team. The deal was finalised in early December 2010, with the team to be renamed Lotus Renault GP for 2011, under a sponsorship deal signed with Lotus Cars until 2017. This leaves the sport without any team racing under a French licence for the first time since the 1975 season. Group Lotus has yet to purchase a stake in the team.
