Renault names new youngsters

The Renault Driver Development programme has enjoyed some successes over the years and has now named two new drivers for the scheme: Romain Grosjean, a 19-year-old who was born and lives in Geneva but has French and Swiss nationality, and 21-year-old Briton Ben Hanley. The programme retains Argentine Jose Maria Lopez and Brazil's Lucas DiGrassi. Heikki Kovalainen has become a member of the Renault F1 team and moved on and Renault has dropped Frenchman Loic Duval and Venezuelan Pastor Maldonado.
