An unlikely name is being linked with a potential F1 foray for 2015.

Earlier, it emerged that former Force India and HRT boss Colin Kolles was among the bidders for pitlane's final 2015 spot.

The Caradisiac publication reports that Kolles has the backing of "Romanian entities", with the aim "to promote the country's image and businesses".

Enter the name Dacia.

It is a Romanian carmaker, renowned for its unspectacular Logan and Duster models.

Since 1999, it has been owned by Renault, the French marque and F1 engine supplier.

"Unspectacular Logan and Duster models". As the former isn't officially offered on these shores and the latter is, I think the Duster is spectacular considering its price, equipment, durability, and off-road prowess on 4WD models.

Lada niva or suzuki samurai are also good offroad cars and as unspectacular as duster. (also cheap at their respective time, way cheaper than duster right now)

Why not? They have looooots of money, F1 knowledge from Renault. In fact that would only need F1 Renault rebranding, so it's easy.
