The Renault F1 Team has announced that it will pull the covers off its 2019 car and launch its new season on February 12 at an event set to take place at its Enstone factory.

The French outfit will see one major change for next season's campaign, its fourth since its return in 2016 as a works outfit to Grand Prix racing, with the arrival of ex-Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo who replaces McLaren-bound Carlos Sainz.

The Aussie will partner Nico Hulkenberg who will embark on his third season with the team.

Renault concluded 2018 with the honorary title of 'best of the rest' as it placed fourth n the Constructors' standings.

Pre-season testing for 2019 will kick off February 18 at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona.
