Re­nault has re­vealed it is work­ing on a “com­pletely new” For­mula 1 car for next sea­son de­spite the tech­ni­cal rules re­main­ing largely the same. There are a few rel­a­tively mi­nor changes such as the in­tro­duc­tion of the Halo, but de­spite this Re­nault has de­cided to adopt a rad­i­cal ap­proach. “It’s a com­pletely new car de­spite a rel­a­tively low num­ber of reg­u­la­tion changes,” said tech­ni­cal di­rec­tor Nick Ch­ester. “We’ve learned a lot on the aero­dy­namic pack­age and the bal­ance of a car built to 2017 reg­u­la­tions, so the car should rep­re­sent a strong step for­ward. We’ll be do­ing some aero runs in prac­tice in Brazil with a va­ri­ety of aero in­stru­men­ta­tion to help pre­pare the 2018 pack­age.”
