We talked about wanting to see riders of our program a combat pilot of Formula 1, and we consistently go to this. It is very important for us, for our young people participating in the youth formulas, to see their perspectives and to have such a huge incentive to work for further victories"."We are pleased to see Sergey Sirotkin, who has joined us this season, said managing Director of Renault Sport's Cyril Abitboul. - We also have a number of key partners, including the largest Motorsport SMP Racing program. We have the fastest growing team in Formula 1, and now we have to demonstrate its capabilities on the track. Our goal was to score points at every stage of the championship".The status of the backup pilot and the terms of the contract imply the involvement of Sirotkin in the team work, participation in Friday practice at some stage and, if necessary, possible to replace the main pilot of the team."I never hid the fact that my goal is to become the main pilot of Renault, - said Sergey Sirotkin. And today we almost came close to this goal. Of course, I still have a lot to learn in order to represent their country in the highest Motorsport division, and that it will be devoted to the upcoming season. All who know me, also know that no one want to fight and win, working and practicing to achieve a goal. Thanks to the team Renault, thanks to the program SMP Racing and Boris Romanovich Rotenberg, thank you to everyone who believed in me - I will do everything possible and impossible in order to meet the expectations".

Helmut Marko Renault promised us to upgrade the engine to the middle of the season

Racing consultant to Red Bull Helmut Marko said that he observes positive changes in the development team.Helmut Marko "We see encouraging signs that the gap between us and leaders is gradually declining.Before the European part of the season we should be in good shape. From the point of view of speed, our engine needs to be at Ferrari unless they make a big jump, even though we have not yet reached the level of Mercedes.However, the gap is not so large, and we can't afford to say that there is no chance. In Spain we have an updated version of the new engine. On him we have high hopes".
