Following hot on the heels of Sauber, who unveiled their Alfa Romeo-branded Sauber C37 a few hours earlier, the Enstone team took the covers off the vehicle they hope will bring another improved showing this season.

The deal will see the Chinese-language website's logo displayed prominently on the French outfit's race auto, with more details of the agreement expected to be announced ahead of the season-opening Australian Grand Prix in March. The financial terms of the deal have not yet been made public.

Considering its slow, but realistic climb up the F1 ladder, the team expected issues during their first two years in the sport, in which one of them were reliablity problems with the engines, both in their own works cars and in the customers teams, such as Red Bull Racing, in which Renault is now supplying, in their final season with the Austrian outfit. Furthermore, improvements have been made to Renault's Enstone factory in the past year, allowing the expanded team to put their affluence to good use. It was the second year in our rebuilding and a further step towards our long-term plans and aims.

Renault boss Cyril Abiteboul says he is keen to demonstrate the manufacturer's progression through 2018 as it continues its long-term bid to re-emerge as a front-runner in Formula 1.

Our headline target [for 2018] is to show continued progression through results.

Wynn Resorts, Limited (WYNN) Holdings Increased by First Trust Advisors LP
After $1.40 actual EPS reported by Wynn Resorts, Limited for the previous quarter, Wall Street now forecasts 26.43% EPS growth. Moreover, Cornerstone Invest Ltd Liability has 0.02% invested in AT&T Inc. 44 funds opened positions while 77 raised stakes.

"The success of the programme in just two years is testament to the resilient plan laid down early in the creation of the team and the strong job done by Cyril and the entire Renault Sport Racing teams".

Renault Sport intends to challenge top teams for the championship in the near future, though this season is likely to be used to build a foundation for future seasons. 2016 was all about recruiting, investing, bringing in new sponsors, new talents and building our brand.

Renault, who have Germany's Nico Hulkenberg and Spaniard Carlos Sainz as their driver line-up, last won the championship with Spaniard Fernando Alonso in 2006. We want to be able to showcase our progression in every regard; power unit, chassis, operations, drivers. Without that we wouldn't have finished where we finished.

"We are positive that the new concept offers us more opportunities and will help us make improvements in the course of the season".

For 2018 we need to continue our upward trajectory.
