No late livery change for Renault
Renault has shot down a rumour that it might be considering a livery change for the start of the season in Melbourne.
A year ago, as the French carmaker returned to the sport as a full constructor, it launched a black test car only for it to switch to all-yellow for the actual world championship.
Now, the colour black has returned prominently to the newly-launched 2017, triggering rumours Renault could revert to all-yellow or even a striking yellow and blue colour scheme for Melbourne.
But a team spokesman told Auto Bild: "Those rumours have no substance."
