“We are extremely pleased with the work the team has done, and the results it has achieved, under Flavio Briatore's management,” said Renault team President Patrick Faure. “This decision has been taken with the full agreement of our future CEO, M Carlos Ghosn, who wishes to maintain the stability of a winning team.”
