Speaking at the launch Renault Sport Racing president Jerome Stoll said he expects the team to be “real contenders for the podium”.
The car was uncovered by Daniel Ricciardo, the team’s new driver for 2019, Nico Hulkenberg and technical chiefs Nick Chester and Marcin Budkowski.
Renault returned to Formula 1 in 2016 and has climbed towards the front of the grid, ending last year fourth in the constructors’ championship. But it has a long way to go to shrink the gap to the likes of Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull. The latter has dropped Renault as its power unit supplier this year, meaning only the factory Renault team and McLaren will use the French manufacturers’ power units.
The team has also published renderings showing how its 2019 car will look. The first RS19 chassis is still being completed at its Enstone base ahead of the start of pre-season testing at the Circuit de Catalunya next week.

Less yellow it seems, sadly. But it’s still a good look.

Probably my favourite colour combo and livery in F1.

Ricciardo’s number is fast becoming one of the iconic numbers to have on an F1 car! #3

Danny boy looks a million bucks :) onya mate, no guts, no glory! They gave Fernando two championships against the almighty red devils, who knows what they can do over the next 5 years.

They probably need Flavio again for a championship, juist as he did with Alonso.

After hiring Sean Bull I was hoping for something special with this years livery.. seems they must have assigned him to kitchen duties.

My thoughts exactly, its one of the best livery’s on the grid but you have to wonder why the need to hire Sean when its essentially the same livery.

He seems quite proud of it on Twitter but honestly it’s nowhere near his concept work. Which is to be expected I guess, he has free reign over that stuff but still.

When I see Hulk and Ricciardo together I really can’t see them getting along or being quiet about their differences.. I just get that feeling they’ll have a big personality clash..Cannot wait!!
