Briatore says 2007 not a transition year

Although Renault has been talking down its chances of success in 2007 in recent months, team boss Flavio Briatore says that he expects Renault to go on winning.

"This is no year of transition for the ING Renault F1 Team," he says. "We have always said that the team is what matters, and that success comes from the team spirit that unites us. 2007 is a fantastic opportunity to prove exactly that. There are some big changes for this season, not just at Renault but throughout the grid. We believe in our choices, and we are confident that they will help us achieve more success in 2007. It will be a year of tough competition at every level. Those are the conditions that allow the best teams to shine, and that is exactly what we intend to do."
