A shake-up at Renault F1

Bernard Dudot, Deputy Managing Director of Renault F1 Team, has decided to retire at the end of this month. The team has announced that Rob White and Andre Laine will become joint Deputy Managing Directors of Renault F1 Team France in Viry-Ch?tillon. White will retain responsibility for all technical programmes while Laine will assume responsibility for support operations.

"I would like to thank Bernard for his contribution to the team," said Patrick Faure. "He re-joined Renault F1 Team at a critical time in our programme, and has played a key role in our successes during the past two seasons. I wish him well in his retirement."
