Why Renault will need more than "glimpses" in 2020

Renault's decision to release only teaser shots of its 2020 challenger was disappointing, if unsurprising. It's next challenge is to make sure that the R.S.20 doesn't simply tease its potential, but makes a tangible step forward on 2019

When Renault announced the running order of its launch event, it promised mere "glimpses" of its new RS20 design, covering for the fact that the actual Formula 1 car was absent from the festivities. While infuriating, it was also a perfect metaphor for the team in many ways.

All that Renault has really shown on its return to F1 as a full-fat works team are glimpses; glimpses of potential that have as yet not been fulfilled, as its hopes of becoming a genuine contender for wins in 2019 ultimately came to nothing with an R.S.19 that flattered to deceive.
