Renault takes covers off its 2019 F1 vehicle

6:39                                            Renault drivers Nico Hulkenberg and Daniel Ricciardo discuss their hopes for the new season

Australian Ricciardo ended his lengthy association with Red Bull to make his surprise move to Renault.

Renault finished fourth past year, still a long way behind reigning champions Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull, but with its engines winning four races in the back of the latter team's cars.

Renault is the fourth Formula 1 team to show off its 2019 colors, launching the R.S.19 at team headquarters in the United Kingdom on Tuesday. At the team's launch event at its Enstone base on Tuesday, it displayed a auto with the 2019 livery and front wing.

Retired four times world champion and team special advisor Alain Prost, addressing staff before the launch, said he was impressed by the changes and hoped to see Ricciardo or German teammate Nico Hulkenberg on the podium this year.

Team boss Cyril Abiteboul said: "We want to fight for more. Now that we have got the infrastructure we can take more technical risk, that means we can do more development projects and that's how we get the bigger steps and that's going to help push us towards the front".

"When you walk around Enstone you feel the passion and dedicated to racing". "The first phase of the plan was regeneration - you will see pretty much every single area of the factory has been improved if not completely transformed, from windtunnel instrumentation, manufacturing, milling machines, clean room, race bays, every single area improved in order to compete on the same level as the best".

Abiteboul said progress on the engine over the European winter had been "substantial". "We've invested a lot in Enstone and we will be investing in Viry". "We know them and understand them and had time to put in place a structure", he said.

"It (the step up in performance) is the biggest we have ever done since the V6 was introduced (in 2014)", the Frenchman told reporters.
