The Frenchman, who will be competing in the Formula Nissan Championship in Spain this year, will spend the day meeting all the staff at the Team's French base.

On the schedule are visits to the assembly workshops, design office and the dynos as well as technical briefings with the team led by Jean-Jacques His, Managing Director of Renault F1 Team France.

"Joining a team is like joining a family," explained Franck. "To my mind, it seemed essential to meet the people working behind the scenes who you never see at the track, but who are still flat out to help the team move forward. I also wanted to learn about upcoming projects, talk to people and understand. In a word, I wanted to get stuck in!"
