“Renault remains in Formula One to achieve success in a cost efficient way and the partnership with Williams has great potential to add to the results we have notched up over recent years with our other partner teams. Williams has recently taken several important steps, both commercially and technically, to update its operations and we feel that this partnership is another important step in its rigorous plan. It reiterates how determined the team is to achieve results, which matches perfectly with our own objectives,” Renault Sport F1 president, Bernard Rey, commented.
Renault is keen to make the most out of its Formula One activities, so the company is happy to attract new partners, as this also allows it to enhance its marketing activities. The Renault Sport F1 president sayd the deal will make it a market leader on the field, as it now has four partnerships.
“We are delighted and excited by our new partnership with Renault. This reunites the F1 team with a leading car manufacturer and complements our new relationship with Jaguar. At the same time, we are grateful to Cosworth: they have been a fair and reliable partner both on and off the track for the past two years and we look forward to working with them across our business in the future,” said Frank Williams, Team Principal of AT&T Williams.
