Renault gets out of EU for F1 launch
The location has been chosen to avoid the tobacco restrictions that exist nowadays in most European countries. Mild Seven has been confirmed as the team's major sponsors for another season.
Three days after the media launch in Switzerland there will be a second unbranded launch at the Circuit Paul Ricard in France, where the Renault R23 will run for the first time.
The team will be running Jarno Trulli and Fernando Alonso in 2003.
