Props up for bringing Hulk aboard.
Don't think Symonds will join Renault. I would love to see Paddy dressed in black & yellow though
Renault's F1 managing director Cyril Abiteboul says the team will not be hiring a new team principal following the departure of Frederic Vasseur.
Vasseur and Renault mutually parted ways this week after just one year together, smoething the Frenchman put down to the lack of a coherent vision for the future among senior management. Vasseur joined as managing director in early 2016 before being made team principal in the summer.
Abiteboul does not feel the team principal role is a necessity in modern Formula One.
"We will not replace Fred in the capacity of team principal," he said. "If we feel we are held back by not having a team principal, we will take action.My belief is that the team principal role is something you need from team to team. If you compare Frank Williams, Monisha [Kaltenborn], Vijay Mallya and Christian Horner defining it is so difficult.
