Renault believes it has “raised its game” in recent races, although admits there is still a need for improvement.
Daniel Ricciardo gave Red Bull Racing and Renault its second win of the season in Hungary, but despite that it is clear Mercedes is the standard setter .
Renault’s Head of Track Operations Rémi Taffin has also conceded that the two high-speed tracks in Belgium and Italy after Formula 1’s summer break will be a tougher test than the tight and twisty Hungaroring.
“We have raised our game in the last few races and worked hard with the team over many man hours to be as competitive as possible,” Taffin noted.
“Of course there is still room for improvement – which is positive – and we now need to aim to be competitive in all types of conditions,” he added.
