Kevin Mag­nussen will lead Re­nault’s re­formed works team this sea­son, ac­cord­ing to man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Cyril Abite­boul. The Dane was handed an F1 life­line when Pas­tor Mal­don­ado’s spon­sor­ship agree­ment dis­solved pre­sea­son. Mag­nussen will part­ner Bri­ton Jolyon Palmer at the team, but Abite­boul ex­pects Mag­nussen’s ex­pe­ri­ence of a sea­son with Mclaren to pay div­i­dends: “Both our driv­ers have shown they are win­ners in pre­vi­ous cat­e­gories – with Kevin win­ning For­mula Re­nault 3.5 and Jolyon GP2. Kevin is a nat­u­ral tal­ent and has suf­fi­cient ex­pe­ri­ence to be a leader for the tech­ni­cal team and Jolyon will ben­e­fit from hav­ing a strong team-mate.”
