Renault engineers in Paris have embarked on a research and development programme to design and build a completely new V10 engine to replace the current wide-angled unit which is believed to have 100 less horsepower than its major competitors. We have even heard stories which suggest that the gap is bigger than that with suggestions that the top engines are now racing 900 horsepower engines while Renault has around 760. This is difficult to confirm but what has been clear in recent months are the attempts which Renault has made to hire outside engine designers.
