Renault's home Grand Prix an opportunity to demonstrate competitiveness

Renault are preparing for their home Grand Prix and after their relative success in Canada, they will be hoping to score a double points finish again and try and claim the position of 'best of the rest.' Team boss Cyril Abiteboul has said that the home race is important but he does not want the team to get ahead of themselves. 

"France is clearly an important milestone," Abiteboul said to MotorSportWeek. "Not only is it our home Grand Prix at Le Castellet, but also the opportunity to demonstrate further improvement in our competitiveness.

"While Canada, a power sensitive circuit, underlined the gains made in engine performance, France will see the introduction of several development items on the chassis.

“One thing is clear: we cannot dwell on Montréal and to aim for a repeat of that result and keep striving to reduce the gap to the front.”

Renault will hope to impress in front of their home crowd and will hope that they have put the troubles of the start of the season behind them.
