Marcin Budkowski will oversee all chassis development and production activities.

Cyril Abiteboul, Managing Director Renault Sport Racing:
“There have been a lot of positive changes these last few months at Renault Sport Racing with an accelerated expansion at Enstone, the restructuring of our engine philosophy at Viry with the supply of two top customer teams for 2018, our involvement in Formula E and other motor racing categories and the arrival of new partners. All of this is happening in a context where the seasons are longer and more intense. It was clear that the Renault Sport Racing management structure needed reinforcing. Marcin’s mission will be to continue the strengthening of Enstone to enable Renault to join the top Formula 1 teams by 2020, through relying on the proven personnel of the likes of Bob Bell, Nick Chester and Rob White. Marcin’s arrival is excellent news and further proof of our determination to achieve our goals.”
