Renault reveal new R.S.19 2019 F1 auto and livery

Renault F1 car launch: French team aim to close gap with top three

Renault has unveiled its 2019 Formula 1 package, the R.S.19, as it strives to break clear of the midfield and edge closer towards its long-term title goal.

Renault have revealed their brand new challenging auto for the 2019 Formula 1 championship season, to be driven by Nico Hulkenberg and new recruit, Daniel Ricciardo.

Renault and Red Bull split at the end of previous year, leaving the French manufacturer with just two teams - their factory outfit and McLaren - while its former customers have switched to Honda.

Ricciardo won twice for Red Bull past year, but Renault are yet to secure a podium finish since they returned to the grid as a standalone constructor in 2016.

"We go into this season aiming to keep [our] strong and measured momentum", said Team Principal Cyril Abiteboul.

"When you walk around Enstone you feel the passion and dedication to racing", he said. "Simple. We already know we have the drivers, and then the next stage is we want to target engine excellency as we will need a bit of time to produce a race-winning chassis".

Renault has taken the covers off the auto it will contend the 2019 season with.

"We will have to balance performance and reliability, but it's a game everyone is playing in modern Formula One", Abiteboul added.

Retired four times world champion and team special advisor Alain Prost, addressing staff before the launch, said he was impressed by the changes and hoped to see Ricciardo or German teammate Nico Hulkenberg on the podium this year. The Australian, who has won seven F1 races since 2014, is considered one of the best talents on the grid and alongside Hulkenberg completes one of the most exciting driver line-ups going into the new season.

Engine chief Remi Taffin is confident Renault can start cutting the performance gap this year. "We've invested a lot in Enstone and we will be investing in Viry".
