RenaultSport boss reveals F1 season aspirations

RenaultSport hopes that the 2012 Formula One season, which kicks off in Australia this weekend, further proves the reliability of its engines.

The firm's RS27 unit, which has powered Sebastien Vettel to glory for the Red Bull team for the last two years, will be used by no fewer than four teams this year.

In addition to Red Bull, the RS27 will power the Lotus, Catheram and Williams F1 teams.

And while Vettel is being hotly-tipped to retain his crown, Jean-Francois Caubet, managing director of RenaultSport F1, claimed 2012 is all about "consolidation".

"We showed that the Renault RS27 engine is amongst the best on track, but this year we want to stress that the service, driveability and flexibility we afford our partners is the strongest in the business," he commented.

"Ultimately we want to give our partners responsive, reliable engines developed to their full potential within the given regulations to allow them to achieve their respective aims, whether championship titles, race wins or points."
