Why "damaged" Renault is not changing its 2019 targets
Renault targeted securing a clear fourth place in the 2019 constructors' championship, while closing the gap to the top teams. Right now, it’s down in eighth. But it has made changes to try and recuse its campaign and deliver its key aims
As Renault Formula 1 managing director Cyril Abiteboul left the Barcelona circuit last Sunday night after his team had failed to score - again - and slipped to eighth in the standings, he had little doubt that the dark cloud that has hung over the manufacturer since Bahrain was still there.
It was just a few cruel seconds in Bahrain. Four laps from home, Nico Hulkenberg and Daniel Ricciardo ground to a halt within metres of each other at the first corner. It has been enough to derail Renault's 2019 campaign.

Formula 1’s visits to Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya over recent years have been met with familiar criticisms despite tweaks here and there to the track to improve racing. With the 2021 Spanish Grand Prix largely going the same way, proper solutions need to be followed to achieve F1’s wider targets
Often described as Formula 1's laboratory, the Circuit de Catalunya-Barcelona gave the clearest demonstration yet of the pecking order in 2021. And it's the key discrepancies from that order which illuminate who is excelling, and who needs to hit the reset button.
An aggressive first corner move from Max Verstappen appeared to have set the Red Bull driver on course for victory in the Spanish Grand Prix. But canny strategy from Mercedes - combined with the absence of Red Bull's number two from the lead group - allowed Lewis Hamilton to pull off a demoralising reversal
Lewis Hamilton led the way in Friday practice for the 2021 Spanish Grand Prix, but there was one major encouraging sign for Red Bull. However, making good on that gain will require Max Verstappen to avoid repeating a mistake that left him well down the FP2 order...
Three points finishes from as many starts represents a decent opening innings on paper, but Daniel Ricciardo has endured a tough start to his McLaren career - only magnified his teammate's excellent form. Yet both he and the team have good reason to expect a turnaround soon.
