Alain Prost says Renault is not setting goals for 2018, but he will not rule out a podium for the French team. After winter testing, the general consensus is that Renault and Haas will battle to lead the midfield behind top teams Mercedes, Red Bull and Ferrari.
But team advisor Prost says Renault’s goal is only to improve. “In 2018 we will progress and gradually become stronger,” he told Nice Matin newspaper at a F1 demonstration in Nice. “Theoretically, the top three teams retain a great advantage and it will be difficult to catch them. But by the middle of the season we will have new parts and you can never exclude the possibility of being on the podium,” the quadruple world champion added.
