The Renault F1 team became the third team to reveal its 2017 car, the Renault R.S.17, today in London.
Following images released by Williams and Sauber of their 2017 cars, Renault revealed their car today in front of reporters and sponsors. The event was broadcast live on YouTube and Facebook.
Renault have kept with the yellow and black livery this year but have incorporated more black into the design. The low and wide rear wing and the wide tyres make the car seem lower and faster already. As we’ve seen on the Williams and Sauber, Renault have also incorporated a shark fin behind the engine cover and a stub nose.
Jérôme Stoll said that the aim for Renault this season is to finish fifth in the championship. It was also announced the Renault Ambassador Alain Prost has now been appointed as a Special Advisor to Renault Sport F1.
Piloting the R.S.17 for Renault will be Nico Hulkenberg and Kevin Magnussen with Sergei Sirotkin appointed as test driver.
