Renault pair to wear gold overalls in Malaysia

By on Tuesday, April 5, 2011

Apr.5 (GMM) Nick Heidfeld and Vitaly Petrov will not be wearing their regular black overalls in Malaysia this weekend.

Instead, in the usually punishing Sepang heat and humidity, the pair will wear "sparking golden" suits at the wheel of the Lotus-sponsored black and gold Renault, German driver Heidfeld confirmed.

"We hope to reduce the (heat) absorption and stay a bit cooler," he said.

At present, forecasters are predicting a chance of rain throughout the grand prix weekend.
