Renault head of track operations Remi Taffin believes the engine constructor’s power units will be approaching peak performance at this week’s Chinese Grand Prix.
After a disappointing Bahrain Grand Prix earlier this month, where Red Bull managed only a single top eight berth, Renault were reminded of how far they currently are behind the Mercedes-powered teams.
Speaking to ESPN ahead of this week’s race in Shanghai, though, Taffin revealed that a big improvement will be visible in China.
“Overall we’re looking forward to China – while we know it’s still an uphill battle, we feel we have hit our stride now.” Taffin told ESPN.
“While we know that the others are still ahead, we have made some good progress in the last two races, both in reliability and driveability, particularly in race modes.
