Jan.31 – Renault GP reveal 2011 F1 challenger today at Valencia in Spain. Renault R31 presented in the circuit’s pit lane just following mid-day with Robert Kubica and Vitaly Petrov unveiling.

Renault GP Chairman Gerard Lopez and Team Principal Eric Boullier were both in attendance along with new team’s new ‘third’ drivers, Bruno Senna and Romain Grosjean, as well as ‘reserves’ and members of the LRGP Academy Jan Charouz and Ho-Pin Tung. Fairuz Fauzy, who was named as a ‘reserve’ recently, was unable to attend the launch due to his GP2 Series commitments. Looking to the new season, Lopez said the squad’s wants to continue to push to challenge the likes of Red Bull Racing, McLaren and Ferrari.
“For Genii Capital and Lotus Renault GP, the 2011 season will be the one in which we achieve our aims,” he predicted. “We now have 100 percent ownership of the team, and we’re tackling the coming championship with the intention of continuing to do things our way – but always with humility.
“I would like to welcome Lotus Cars, a new ambitious title sponsor with us for the long term. Renault and Total have also chosen to accompany us again in this adventure and we thank them for their valuable contribution.
“Our aim for 2011 is to continue our march towards the front of the grid, seize the slightest opportunity and do better than last season in both the drivers’ and constructors’ championships. We feel we are well prepared for the challenge ahead.”
Boullier meanwhile echoed those sentiments and paid tribute to the efforts put in back at the team’s base in Enstone: “All the hard work over the winter has been focused on delivering a big improvement for 2011. The result is a car with more than 92 per cent new parts compared to the R30. But technical innovation isn’t the only key to performance,” he continued.
“Since last year, we have reviewed all our internal processes and our overall efficiency has now improved by 15 per cent.
“That means we should be more competitive than last year, on the track and at the factory,” he summed-up.
