Renault presents the new cars for the season 2019. Now the superstar Daniel Ricardo (29) must also be successful again – otherwise the French explain this.
By 2021 at the latest (if the new rules emerged) Renault wants to be a world champion again with its factory team – as in 2005 and 2006 with Alonso. The ambitious French again increased significantly this season – staff and financially.
And with Renault we slowly apologize if you have to explain why great success is only defined as a partner engine: Only eight world titles between 2010 and 2013 with Vettel at the Red Bull (driver and constructor title). Then he defeated twelve bulls, one of whom split in 2018 in twelve years.
In bad words. Renault's CEO Sirill Abibubul (who won the power struggle two years ago against the current Alfa chief of team Frederic Vaseur): "Our partner is the engine that has spoken badly for years, but so many races have been won!"
15 million euros for Ricardo
In 2019 at the fourth edition of the World Championship Renault has a chance to irritate the Red Bull Honda. You can not go through Mercedes and Ferrari. Even if the French are sending a great duo in the battle: Nico Hulkenberg (31st, seventh) has not lost his reputation despite 156 races without a podium – and Daniel Ricciardo (29) comes with seven Red Bull victories. Annual salary of one million euros. Hülk won 7th place.
The Australian: "I just did not believe in the quick success with Honda – and I'm also disappointed with the short talks about transferring with Mercedes and Ferrari." Does Ricardo find his constant laugh at Renault?
Renault, the first turbo winner in Dijon, 1979, crowned champions with Mansell, Prost, Hill, Villeneuve (Williams), Schumi (Benetton) and Vettel (Red Bull).
