Renault R29: First Pictures

Ryan WoodAnalyst IJanuary 19, 2009

The Renault R29 was launched this morning in a very low key, on track launch. This has come after Ferrari, Toyota, McLaren and Williams all launched their cars without the usual fanfare.

The R29 has a slight difference in the paint scheme, with much more red visible on the front and rear wings, due to the new sponsor of Total.

Renault are the only team so far to have opted for the shark-fin cover, which was used by several teams last year.

(Note the front nose, very bulky, may be due to the failure of the FIA Crash test?)
