Renault F1 Barcelona pre-season test summary

01.03.2019: Renault F1 Team concluded two weeks of Formula 1 Pre-Season Testing at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on Friday in preparation for the start of the 2019 FIA Formula 1 World Championship in

Renault F1 Team concluded two weeks of Formula 1 Pre-Season Testing at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on Friday in preparation for the start of the 2019 FIA Formula 1 World Championship in a fortnight’s time.



The team accumulated 961 laps (4,473 km) over the two, four-day tests, the third most of any team, with Nico Hülkenberg completing 509 laps and Daniel Ricciardo 452 laps.



The team gears up for the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne on March 17 with an extensive amount of data and feedback to analyse following a productive pre-season test period in Spain, which saw Nico and Daniel share driving duties on each day.



The Renault R.S.19 and Renault E-Tech 19 power unit ran reliably throughout, allowing the team to complete its programme largely to plan.






Fast Facts:


Track: Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, Spain, 4.7km.
Chassis: Renault R.S.19 – 01.
Weather: Excellent conditions throughout the two-weeks with ambient temperatures peaking at 24°C and track temperatures at 34°C.

Laps Completed: Nico 509; Daniel 452.
Fastest Lap: Nico 1:16.843, Daniel 1:17.114




What’s Next?



The team heads back to base at Enstone, UK, and Viry-Châtillon, France, before travelling to Melbourne, Australia for the first race of the 2019 FIA Formula 1 World Championship.





Cyril Abiteboul, Managing Director Renault Sport Racing:



“On the whole we have had a good couple of weeks testing in Barcelona and we are satisfied with the work accomplished ahead of the first race of the season. The main objective of winter testing is to evaluate parts to their limits and some things worked better than others: that’s all part of the game. Nico and Daniel gave constructive feedback throughout the fortnight as they shared driving duties each day and helped our engineering team make progress where necessary.



Overall, we have had great factory-circuit correlation and co-operation and gathered some critical information. We established that our engine performance is matching our expectations, and the chassis concept is good. We now need to build on from here, and continue to feed back into performance. As for everyone else, we have lots of work to do ahead of Melbourne but we feel we have maintained the momentum from last season and look forward to getting back out on track.”




Nico Hülkenberg:



“I leave Barcelona feeling encouraged after a busy eight days in the car. We’ve made good progress as a team from last year in particular on the power unit. Our reliability has been decent, we had a few small issues here and there, but the team dealt with anything like that quite well and still managed a high lap count.




We know the competition is extremely tight, but we only want to focus on ourselves. We head to Melbourne feeling relatively confident, but in the meantime, we have a lot of analysis to look at to ensure we maximise the potential from the car.”





Daniel Ricciardo:



“It’s been a pretty good week and we’ve done a decent amount of laps with some consistent running. It will take some time to catch the front teams but that is not what we expected to happen at winter testing and we are very realistic about that. At the same time, it’s impossible to make accurate performance predictions.



 We still have work to do and things to improve on and that’s what we’ll focus on now. We will dissect the data we’ve harnessed over the past days back at the factory. We are making progress but the bigger steps will happen gradually going forward. I’m heading to Melbourne feeling that I belong here and I just want to go racing now!”
