  • Renault reveal new R.S.19 2019 F1 vehicle and livery

Having finished fourth in the constructors' championship last season - improving from ninth in 2016 and sixth the following campaign - Renault Sport Racing president Jerome Stoll says the next target is to challenge the top three teams for podiums this year.

"We feel ready, we feel it is the right time to show you all what has been going on in the background of the last three years and are extremely proud of", said team boss Cyril Abiteboul. "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 was fourth in the constructors' championship previous year, which was financially a valuable achievement, but the gap to Red Bull in the standings was 297 points.

Renault said there had been substantial progress on the engine, a weakness in recent years.

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

The acquisition of Daniel Ricciardo set off a chain of driver changes in F1, as along with Pierre Gasly replacing him at Red Bull, Kimi Raikkonen and Charles Leclerc swapped teams from Ferrari to Sauber and vice-versa, while rookies such as George Russell and Lando Norris will be making their debuts in 2019.

Il le fait dans un contexte difficile dans la mesure où Nissan vient d'annoncer un bénéfice net en recul de 45 % entre avril et décembre 2018, sur fond de difficultés aux Etats-Unis et en Europe .

Abiteboul said one benefit of that was Renault could now "fully control our communication" after years of public criticism from Red Bull about a lack of performance and reliability.

"If we made a decision to get all of you here today it's really because we feel ready", Abiteboul said. "That's what we're aiming to do".

Meanwhile new recruit Ricciardo stated that his goal was to bring some "positive energy" to Renault to help motivate them to greater things. "We've invested a lot in Enstone and we will be investing in Viry".

"We have confidence that we have a good platform".

"We are now becoming a big team", the Frenchman said.
