Renault e.dams : Formula E season 4 launch

Renault e.dams is the most successful team in the short history of the FIA Formula E Championship. With three teams titles, a driver title and 15 wins, Renault e.dams has been the benchmark since the series inception in 2014. Formula E action resumes with the Hong Kong ePrix (December 2-3), the first clash of Season 4 and a chance for the Team to outline its objectives for 2017/2018.

“For 40 years, engine activity has been Renault’s watchword in motorsports, in Formula 1 and since 2014 in Formula E. As the only constructor currently involved in both disciplines, Renault has developed numerous synergies between the two programmes. It is first and foremost the case on the technical side, with shared engineering. I believe that our supremacy in Formula E can be explained in large part by the expertise developed for Formula 1 since the introduction of hybrid systems in 2009. For Season 4, Renault’s challenge will be to balance the resources between defending its three Teams’ titles by providing a service that should be particularly exemplary in this season of technical stability.”
Cyril Abiteboul, Renault Sport Racing Managing Director

“My impressions are very positive but also somewhat easy to draw because we have won the three Constructors’ Championships and one Drivers’ Championship from three.
The goal has been the same since the first season and there is no reason for that to change this year. We want to win the constructors’ and drivers’ titles. Nevertheless, this objective will be harder to reach due to the increased level of competition this season. We were challenged and caught at the end of Season 3 by some other teams but we have the assets to try to win these two titles again.”
Alain Prost Senior Team Manager

"Stability is one of the team’s strongest points. It has also been a very competitive team since the beginning of the championship. We have people who were with the team before Season 1, so when we take on Season 4 with the same team members, this allows for a real understanding and a calm stability. We manage to extract the best from ourselves through this."
Sebstien Buemi, Renault e.dams driver

"As far as we are concerned, the three titles are a thing of the past and we are now concentrating on the future. I would say that the atmosphere is almost "vengeful", because we want to win both the team’s and driver titles."
Nicolas Prost, Renault e.dams driver
