Cape Town - Renault boss Cyril Abiteboul is ready for an
"interesting" season ahead as they try and cater for themselves, as
well as two high-profile customers in Red Bull and McLaren.
There will be more pressure on teams regardless of other
relationships due to the new three-engine limit for the 2018 season, but
Renault are braced for a very demanding campaign trying to keep their clients
happy whilst trying to progress as a works team.
"Actually, I think there is more positives than there
is some negative in those relationships, even though I accept it's going to be
high maintenance and going to be an interesting season to manage,"
Abiteboul said via Motorsport.com.
"I think it's interesting because it's challenging -
but at the same time it's providing motivation to everyone.
"There is clearly pride to be supplying engines to
other great teams and their fantastic drivers.
"Also, I believe McLaren has a wealth of experience and
can show us the way to push our engine, but also new ways of making sure we
have a winning package.
"Frankly I'm looking forward to it. It's good to be in
a competitive environment, but it's also good to be challenged."
