Abiteboul: Renault back on track after Canada

Renault team boss Cyril Abiteboul says the team is finally back on track after the updates it brought to the Canadian Grand Prix appear to have worked.

The French team had been rumoured to have been forced to turn its engines down at the beginning of 2019 over reliability fears however unveiled new updates in Montreal that appear to have worked as planned.

Ahead of the outfit's home race at Paul Ricard, Abiteboul says the team is very much back in the game and fighting at the sharp end of the midfield.

"It's a good team result, it's the best that we could expect at this point, it puts us back in the game, very close from the McLarens," Abiteboul told Motorsport.com.

"It's also good because it was simply a weekend that has happened without an issue, that developed itself without any particular problem. And therefore we see what's possible if we are capable of doing that.

"Frankly I can tell you that from Thursday, Friday onwards, it's been a perfect execution, absolutely no mistakes, absolutely no incidents. So, in all respects, it's a blueprint and an example of what needs to follow."
