Renault set February launch date

Following the recent launch date announcements from Mercedes and Force India, Renault confirmed today the date for its own launch, which is so far the earliest of the four teams.

The new Renault car will be launched on the 21st February, the day before the Force India, which comes just a year after the marques re-entry to the sport.

After a year of development at Renault, working on the engine which saw substantially behind the leading Mercedes and investment in the team which was lost under the former Lotus ownership, gains are to be expected. Last year a combination of a lack of downforce and power from the engine meant they fell to the back of the field – battling against Sauber and Manor.
