Renault confirm earliest car reveal date so far

06 Jan 2017

Renault have become the fourth team to announce when their 2017 car will be unveiled to the public, with fans to get their first look at the French squad’s new machine on February 21.

That is a day before Force India’s launch on February 22, which will be followed by Mercedes' on February 23 and Ferrari's on February 24.

The 2017 season will be Renault’s second of their return to Formula One racing in works guise, and they expect to improve on a disappointing 2016 campaign which saw them score just eight points to finish ninth in the constructors’ standings.

The team are in the process of building up their facilities and personnel with the aim of returning to the front of the grid in coming seasons. They will feature a new driver line-up this year, with Jolyon Palmer partnered by new team mate Nico Hulkenberg who joined from Force India over the winter.
