Illustration for article titled If Lotus Wins An F1 Race, What National Anthem Gets Played?

When a driver wins an F1 race, the national anthem of the team's country and the driver's country is played during the podium ceremony. So what anthem's played if Lotus Racing wins a race? God Save The Queen? Nope.


Despite Lotus being based in the UK, it's actually owned by Malaysian auto maker Proton. Secondly, the Formula 1 team is backed by Malaysian companies. Thus, the national anthem of Malaysia, Negaraku, will be played. Good to know. [via World Car Fans]
