Williams are surprised by Renault's "extraordinary" return

Claire Williams of the Williams Formula 1 team says the development he has made since Renault entered the sport as a factory team is extraordinary.

The French manufacturer bought Lotus, which had financial problems before the 2016 season, and finished the ninth in the championship, winning only eight points during the season.

The French producer, who scored 56 points last year, finished sixth in the season and seems to have taken another strong step in 2018.

While Carlos Sainz and Nico Hulkenberg were seventh and tenth in Australia, the team received double points for the first time since the return of the team. Also, Sainz is currently the fastest pitcher of the teams outside the top three.

Claire Williams, "Renault has certainly done a very impressive job, I think they are in the middleman and will soon catch the first three."

"This is a hard-to-believe return, you need to put a lot of effort into it."

"And Renault seems to have done a really good job on this." said.

Cyril Abiteboul, from Renault, said earlier this year that when they took over the Enstone-based team, it was a lack of investment from their previous owners and that their competitors were almost ten years behind.

During this time, Enstone certification was developed and recognized by FIA as an important name like Marcin Budkowski.

Nico Hulkenberg, who participated in last year's league, mentioned the impact of Renault's investments on his statement.

"Yes, you finally feel it because everything turns into performance."

"But it's a factory team, and if they want to go back to the front, that's what they have to do and that's exactly what they do."

"In Formula 1, you can always stay at the front, at your place, you need to progress, you have to make investments and you have to work harder than others to get close."

"We have a good vision together, we will approach the front, the basic question here is how long it will last, I'm not sure of that."
