There are set to be major changes to F1 in the whole for 2021, and it is believed that Daniel Ricciardo signed for Renault with 2021 in mind.

The French team are languishing in eighth in the Constructors’ Championship, and have less than half the points of fourth placed McLaren.

In an article on F1i.com ,when asked about the teams concentration on 2020, Abiteboul replied: "Will it be a step to fight for podiums or wins on a straightforward basis.

"No, because we know F1. And frankly our best bet is to work on 2021.

"That is why there will be a balanced effort of what we do for 2020 because we want to start now and we will be starting now on 2021 development."
