Renault to reveal 2016 F1 plans in Paris – 2016 Renault F1 Car Concept by andwerndesign.com

The media has been summoned to Paris for February 3, as Renault presses the throttle on its plans for 2016.

In a teaser video released on Wednesday, the carmaker declared: “Can’t you hear us coming back?”

Indeed, Renault’s plans appear to be on schedule, as the Enstone based outfit formerly known as Lotus declared on Twitter: “Chassis homologation: done.”

It means the 2016 car, tipped to be yellow and black to mark Renault’s return to full works team status, has passed the FIA’s mandatory crash test requirements.

The next milestone will be in Paris when the full team including the management and drivers are unveiled.

Williams, third overall in 2014 and 2015, admits it is looking over its shoulder at rivals like Red Bull, Force India and also Renault.

“The works Renault team are going to start investing,” senior engineer Rob Smedley is quoted by Sky. “So I think there are lots of people behind us who can make great strides.”
