Renault launched 2020 campaign, but where's the car?

Renault Sport warned fans and journalists that it was not going to unveil its actual car at today's team launch, but instead limit itself to some presentations and a few glimpses of its new R.S.20.

Wow there are quite a lot of nice features on this car. I was not expecting Renault to produce this. Everything looks much tidier and the front end looks like it might produce some performance. I'm not going to say it is top 3 performance but I might have to rethink my statement about mclaren pulling away from the mid pack with this car. I suppose it will just depend on the PU performance and reliability.

Wow, this car looks extremely sophisticated.

I'm not saying it's top 3 but the level of detail and finish is stunning.

Looks like Renault is also going the Mercedes route with the high wishbones and narrow nose. Interesting how much they changed the front in the last year of this formula.

Look at that air box! Clearly inspired by the Ligier Tea-Pots of the 70s... :mrgreen:

They made the sidepod side walls thinner too. First time Enstone does this in years
