Cheese Renault: The cars are yellow

Thatís the best I can come up with. What can be said about Renault? er, letís think...

It seems such a long time now since they won the French Grand Prix by over half an hour. A great notable victory, beating an Italian car into second. Mercedes could only muster 10th and 11th, barely on the same lap.

Now they have two decent peddlers. Yet they are nowhere. The car is not a 2019 Williams, but itís not exactly factory.

Where do they end up this year? Can they do it again? That team always seemed to punch above their budget.

What is the main problem with that car? The engine, brakes, aero, or a bit of everything?

I must say that I prefer the question in the title. Everytime I see the Williams thread title, I answer 'no' in my head.

I would suggest: Renault - Did they race last weekend?

Most accurate statement on TenTenths this year.


Adam hasn't seen the Renaults run in the wet yet, the paint will probably wash off!

Renault have been the disappointments of the season so far. From best of the rest last season, no progress has been made and are now at best qualifying on the cusp on the top ten.

V8 Fireworks should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
The bigger worry than the lack of pace, is that the Renault car is inherently flawed and wrong. Braking is poor. Traction is poor. Downforce levels are inconsistent and unpredictable.

It suggests problems with the way they design and develop the car. Making the car easy to drive, with consistent and predictable downforce should be the foundation before trying to chase performance.

Renault seem instead of have found high levels of theoretical peak performance in ideal conditions on the drawing board, but this is useless if it can't be put into practice... Keeping on that path will lead nowhere IMO.

They’ve got the best braker out there and made a car that is awful under braking. Style.

I'd like to know why they have Alain Prost, aged 64, as an advisor?
Nothing on their car relates to when he raced...

I suspect he has the title advisor, but his function is to keep sponsors and guests entertained. Better call him advisor get him on telly than call him a tour rep.

It would be cool to be a guest of Renault and get to meet Prost

Possibly for the same reason, and just as relevant, when Lauda was an advisor at Ferrari in the mid-'90s?

Or does it mean that once a car's technology moves on, a former F1 champion has nothing to offer to a team?

Okay, I can't let this go, I have to disagree. Well I don't have to, but I will, because, as I mentioned earlier in this post, I can't let this go.

Back on topic: the Renault's aren't simply yellow. IMO, the RS19 is yellow AND black. One could argue in fact that the livery's actually more black than yellow but that's a whole 'nother thread. At the very least, calling the cars 'yellow' is an obvious oversimplification.
