“2020 is an important transition year for the team. We aim to recapture the positive momentum from our first three year since returning to Formula 1 while preparing for next season, which will represent a new cycle for all teams.”
Abiteboul backed up the longer-term view the team appears to be taking into the new season, adding that Renault would be setting itself up for the changes in 2021.
“This year must see us setting the best possible course for the major regulation changes of 2021. The organisational changes made in the second half of 2019 are with this firmly in mind,” he said.
“We approach this new season with humility and ambition. Humility as the challenge is huge for every team, every coming year and we are not the exceptions.”
