Some multi-millionaire venture capitalists buy boring yachts. Luckily, Gerard Lopez isn’t one of them
Posted: 12 Jul 2012
Who is Gerard Lopez? If you really know your F1, you'll recognise the name as belonging to one of the co-owners of a venture capital outfit called Genii Capital, which bought a percentage of the Renault F1 team in 2009, before moving to 100 per cent ownership a few years later.
For 2012, the team is now Lotus F1 (though still powered by Renault), and, with Kimi Räikkönen and Romain Grosjean, is currently looking very racy indeed. Lopez also sits on the Group Lotus board - though that's a wholly separate entity - and has significant interests in 60 other companies.
