Renault’s 1% Rule?

Renault figures they are within 1% of the top teams.  I, while usually skeptical of these statements, would be hard pressed to not believe Pat Symonds after Barcelona’s result.  Pat has a way of making cars good and Fernando has a way of making cars fast.  Those two combinations, while sophomoric I admit, are the recipe for success.  As evidenced by the two most recent titles Renault won.

Can Fernando ring the Renault’s neck this weekend for a good show?  If I had to lay money on it; I’ll sidle up to Pat Symonds on this one.  He hasn’t let me down yet.  Well, except with last years car and this years car up until now.  ;)

“Aerodynamic efficiency pays dividends at nearly every track, and so there is no reason to believe that we will not be in a similar position in Istanbul,” said Symonds.

“I firmly believe that we are within 1% of the leading team now, which is a big improvement from where we were at the beginning of the season.

“But we must not be complacent because there is still a lot to do and so we will introduce further aero upgrades in time for Istanbul.”
