Renault Sport F1 launched its 2019 F1 world championship programme today, introducing the team that it hopes will bring it closer to the front of the field this season.

Renault’s 2019 charger will be steered by Nico Hulkenberg and new recruit Daniel Ricciardo who will be out to defend the French manufacturer’s honorary title of best of the rest.

But Renault’s solid line-up will be sparing no effort to reduce the yellow squad’s gap with Formula 1’s trio of front-runners, Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull.

The Enstone roll-out did not feature Renault’s 2019 R.S.19, as the presentation – as Haas and Williams – showcased the team’s livery on last year’s car, although the modified R.S.18 displayed a 2019-spec front wing.
