In the year 2015 with Motors team Renault will at least five victories in formula 1. With this optimistic forecast spoke at the Canal + Managing Director of Renault Sport F1 Cyril Abitebul. According to him, over the past winter motoristam French company managed to halve the backlog from Mercedes and the coming season will bring German leaders a lot of unpleasant surprises.
We believe that at the end of the 2014 season inferior Mercedes power about 60 horsepower, says Abitebul. To the Australian Grand Prix (recall this year, he will open the season March 15 — ed.) we hope to close this gap by half. In addition, unlike the Mercedes we start the year with a fresh version of the engine and used only about two-thirds of the 32 points allowed (on point system fine-tuning Motors read more in our recent material). My goal is to win at least five victories this season.
Recall that in the year 2014 Motors Renault managed to win only three times, and all three victories by Daniel Rikk′ârdo from Red Bull. The remaining 16 races won the Mercedes; Ferrari for the first time since 1993 in the same year took in Maranello a single cup for the highest achievement in motorsport. This year the Italians quite self-critical are counting on two WINS, well, Honda soberly saying that first year in formula 1 is always a struggle for survival. So, the main intrigue: will the year 2015 fight Mercedes and Renault or playing in one gate will continue?
