As the big money squads like Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull possess an obvious advantage at the moment as a result of these huge funds, Renault F1 managing director Cyril Abiteboul thinks price limits coming for 2021 can change the situation.
For while he takes this Renault’s budget isn’t large enough to help it close down the gap to front for the brief term, he thinks the difficulties that’ll come as some teams will need to cut back can leave them with an”major” headache.
“We know we’ve a massive shortage in funds contrary to the teams that ultimately we would like to fight contrary to,” he explained. “But we also realize things just like the budget cap at any time will kick .
“It would make no sense to pile up funds comprehending we will have to cut back and move down. At a certain respect it will be most unprofessional to do this, to employ people that we may have to reduce later on.
I would say our disadvantage will be the resources that we’ve at the subsequent two years.
“However, our advantage is that we will not have the joy of being forced to take into consideration the long run. We can concentrate on proceeding hurrying, and not having to consider about a redundancy plan that would have been a big diversion, let’s ’s face it, for the managing of teams that are much bigger than us.
“You will find benefits and drawbacks, I’m not moaning, we have an idea and we will execute it. ”
After Renault spent heavily in its own Enstone performance since returning as a works team in 2016, Abiteboul is well known that the fruits of its efforts will make a large gap because it heads to next season.
Asked if he was stressed or excited about 2019, Abiteboul said: “I think that it wouldbe nerves or concern if we were not seeing the gains that we’re seeing.
“But we still have to be attentive. We don’t even know the benefits of those others, but my confidence and also the confidence and the optimistic mindset of the team is coming also from the energy that we’re atmosphere anyplace.
“The group of people that are coming together, understanding each other; the changes that Marcin [Budkowski] in Enstone is implementing, the stability and acceleration in Viry thanks to a range of recruitments that are finally in place. Most that will be giving me confidence and optimism as opposed to concern about next yr. ”
