Renault to present the R30 in Valencia 14 Jan 2010

Ho-Ping Tung (CHN) Renault R29 Formula One Young Driver Testing, 1-3 December 2009, Jerez Circuit, Spain.

The world’s media will get its first glimpse of Renault’s 2010 car in Spain at the end of this month. The wraps will come off the R30 at a special presentation at the Valencia circuit on Sunday 31 January, the day before the start of the first pre-season F1 test.

Former BMW Sauber star Robert Kubica is heading Renault’s 2010 driver line-up, though his team mate is yet to be confirmed. Kubica is expected to attend the launch, along with new team principal Eric Boullier and Gerard Lopez, chairman of Genii Capital, the company which recently purchased a major stake in the French squad.

Renault had a disappointing 2009 campaign, finishing a lowly eighth in the standings with 26 points. Star driver Fernando Alonso, now departed for Ferrari, secured their only podium of the year with a third place in the Singapore Grand Prix.
