Head of Renault Sport’s Cyril Abitbul said that in the season 2017, the French team should at least be ahead of the Toro Rosso, which will also use the motors from Viry-Chatillon.
“This year will be a transition for Renault, but we will have specific goals stated Abitbul in an interview with Auto Hebdo. – We will try to demonstrate the ability to progress and deal with such strong teams like Williams and Force India. Thus it will be important to stay ahead of the Toro Rosso, which will use the same engine as us.
So our goal should be the fifth-sixth place in the constructors ‘ championship.
It will be a difficult challenge. In 2016, our minders managed twice to reduce the backlog from Mercedes – one seconds before the half. In 2017 we expect to reduce the handicap of our main rivals to 0.25 seconds”.
