The new car features a revised livery which incorporates more black than yellow, unlike its RS17 predecessor.

It will be driven by Nico Hulkenberg and Carlos Sainz who is on loan from Red Bull on a one year contract.

Having improved last year on their debut return season, from ninth to sixth Renault managing director Cyril Abiteboul said that the only target now was to keep improving.

“Last year was successful in many ways,” he said. “It was the second year in our rebuilding and a further step towards our long-term plans and aims.

“Our headline target is to show continued progression through results. We want to be able to showcase our progression in every regard; power unit, chassis, operations, drivers.”

He went on to say that the team must improve in every aspect in order to achieve their goals.

“Everything must improve and we must continue to grow,” he said.

“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.”

2018 will be a testing year for Renault as it is expected to make a big improvement on its 2017 engine (which ended last season with a spate of failiures) and it is set to supply Red Bull and Mclaren who both will be wanting to knock on the doors of Mercedes and Ferrari.
