Renault targets podiums as it launches RS19

Renault targets podiums as it launches RS19

The French manufacturer have reportedly spent big in the off-season as they attempt to break into the elite trio of Mercedes, Ferrari, and Red Bull in the constructor's rankings, having finished the 2018 season as the "best of the rest" in fourth.

Renault's R.S.19 won't be seen until next week, when pre-season testing kicks off in Barcelona, although the digital renderings seen here are a first draft look at the team's 2019 vehicle.

Retaining the services of Nico Hulkenberg for a third year provides an element of stability on which to build, but the addition of former Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo grabbed the headlines in the back end of 2018.

The Enstone roll-out did not feature Renault's 2019 R.S.19, as the presentation - as Haas and Williams - showcased the team's relatively unchanged livery on last year's vehicle, although the modified R.S.18 displayed a 2019-spec front wing. "Now that we have got the infrastructure we can take more technical risk, that means we can do more development projects and that's how we get the bigger steps and that's going to help push us towards the front". At the team's launch event at its Enstone base on Tuesday, it displayed a auto with the 2019 livery and front wing.

Renault boss Cyril Abiteboul believes the team's commitments to returning to the front of the grid is clear in the changes it has been making to every level of its operation.

Raptors to sign veteran PG Lin
The 30-year-old Lin is averaging 10.7 points per game on 46.6 per cent shooting from the field this season. He has been part of three previous playoff runs, in 2013 and 2014 with Houston and in 2016 with Charlotte.

"When you walk around Enstone you feel the passion and dedicated to racing".

"With the new facility, we have more in-house production capacity which allows us to be more time efficient".

Renault said there had been substantial progress on the engine, a weakness in recent years. "We have the structure and we have the people now".

"It (the step up in performance) is the biggest we have ever done since the V6 was introduced (in 2014)", the Frenchman told reporters.
