(cafetheology.org) – In the Formula 1 season 2017 the Renault factory is stronger than in the previous year, but the big litter did not succeed the French in the course of the regular revolution. This was quite a plan, as some teams had already begun their plans for 2017 in the second half of 2015 when the Enstone team was still called Lotus. In the first half of the season Nico Hülkenberg and Jolyon Palmer took a long time on the spot before a strong upturn arose. This is no surprise at Renault, because Cyril Abiteboul followed his team from the outset a fixed path: instead of many small updates A really big make the vehicle faster. At Silverstone, it was already apparent that this strategy could work. "From the outset, we wanted to pursue the course of a drastic change in the philosophy of the vehicle," says the Frenchman. "It was clear to us that it would take a lot of time." To this end, the "normal" development work had been stopped almost early in the course of the season in favor of the radical package, he explained. "This has opened the way to new developments at the front of the vehicle, the center of the car with the bar booards and also at the rear, and there will be much more for the rest of the season." Renault thus indirectly agreed to have pursued a wrong approach first. The same happened to the team during the regular revolution in 2009, when a little purposeful concept on the front wing has been pursued.Input-output tube brought to life With this the goal for the first part of the season was to get the best out of the existing package. "We have often sacrificed qualifying performance to be better off in the race," says Abiteboul. "At the beginning of the season, we were unable to convert our qualifying speed into a decent racing pace." The set-up changes, according to Abiteboul, have been partly paid off – in Baku, for example, Nico Hülkenberg was fifth, before he finished his race with a driving mistake. The breakthrough came with the new ground in Silverstone – A defect in the hybrids system thwarted a fifth place from Hülkenberg, but with rank six important points. "This was not only a great satisfaction, but also a confirmation that the team would come together as we want to put it together," says the German. Many results have been seen in the theory, but the confirmation in the form of a result came only through the performance in Great Britain.
