Renault has revealed their new car for the 2018 F1 season.
The RS18 is the third Formula One car produced by the team since its return to the sport as a full manufacturer entrant.
Renault finished sixth in the constructors’ championship last year and managing director Cyril Abiteboul said the team aims “to show continued progression through results” this year.
“We want to be able to showcase our progression in every regard; power unit, chassis, operations, drivers. Everything must improve and we must continue to grow. We want to demonstrate this in many different ways, from the teams we will be directly racing against, to the gap to the leaders, including also our fan base and the respect that our team will inspire in our way we behave on and off track.”
Renault continues to supply power units to Red Bull and this year will also provide engines to McLaren, having ended its relationship with Toro Rosso. “It’s an honour to supply to teams as big as Red Bull and McLaren and is a recognition of the quality of our product and work that they have chosen Renault,” said Abiteboul. “Of course, they are very strong competitors and that’s an extra challenge and motivation. They will clearly be our benchmarks for performance this season.”
