Renault launches new RS16

Renault has revealed the Formula 1 car with which it returns to the sport as a works team.

The Enstone-based outfit, which had previously been Lotus, held a launch in Paris with a show car earlier this month.

It decided to wait until moments before the first pre-season test began at Barcelona to reveal its full F1 contender.

The team has an all-new driver line-up with Kevin Magnussen joining the team from his role as McLaren reserve while 2014 GP2 champion Jolyon Palmer steps up from his Renault testing position.
