Renault has taken the covers off the car it will contend the 2019 season with.
The car will be piloted by new signing Daniel Ricciardo and Nico Hulkenberg, who remains at the French manufacturer for a third season. Renault finished fourth in 2018 — a spot which has become known as ‘best of the rest’, given the performance gap between the front three and the midfield — and is looking to cut the deficit to Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull this year.
Renault hopes the R.S.19 is the car to do that. The most visible changes to the car shown in the rendered images from last year’s are those mandated by 2019’s new technical regulations, including a wider, simplified front wing, smaller barge boards and a higher, wider rear wing.
At the team’s launch event at its Enstone base on Tuesday, it displayed a car with the 2019 livery and front wing.
1977 to 2019. Every line. Every curve. Using the most advanced technology available, and improving year on year. Breaking new grounds. All leading to today.
Here is the 2019 Renault F1 Team challenger. Here is the R.S.19.
