Renault wants 200 more staff at Enstone

Renault is aiming to add 200 staff to its Enstone chassis factory by the end of next year.

"A lot of positions are opening up," admitted chassis technical director Nick Chester during Wednesday's Paris launch.

When the team was sold by Renault to Lotus some years ago, it was downsized and the current head-count is 450.

"By the end of 2017 we want to have 650 people at Enstone again," confirmed managing director Cyril Abiteboul.

"About 2016, we have to be realistic," he added. "In some areas we are playing catch-up -- it's no secret that we missed the start of the new power unit regulations and Enstone needs a bit of TLC."
