Renault unveiled in Melbourne on Wednesday the 2020 livery of its new R.S.20 as well as the French outfit’s title partner, logistics company DP World.
During pre-season testing in Barcelona, Renault ran its 2020 contender in an all-black livery, but the team’s car has reverted to a familiar matte black and gloss yellow scheme ahead of this weekend’s Australian Grand Prix.
Based in Dubai, DP World – a world leader in trade and a leading provider of smart logistics solutions – will see its name included in the team’s official appellation which becomes ‘Renault DP World F1 Team’ as from the 2020 season.
“We are delighted and honoured to welcome DP World to the Renault family,” said Renault Sports Racing chairman, Jérôme Stoll.
“This is an extremely interesting and exciting collaboration across multiple disciplines. We look forward to working with DP World, a leading global logistics provider, to explore ways of improving our efficiency and mitigating our environmental impact.
“After the ambitions expressed by Formula One to become fully carbon neutral by 2030, we are constantly evaluating ways to reduce our carbon footprint and our turnaround time.
“We expect that working with DP World will reveal opportunities for tangible solutions to some of the logistical challenges faced by our F1 team’s supply chain and by extension, the automotive industry at a larger scale.
“We also look forward to cross-fertilising our engineering skills through shared innovation.”
