We have raised our game, says Renault
29 July 2014 – Renault believes it has "raised its game" in recent races, but admits there is still a need for improvement.
Daniel Ricciardo gave Red Bull and Renault its second win of the season at the Hungarian Grand Prix, although it remains clear that Mercedes still sets the standard.
Renault's Head of Track Operations Rémi Taffin jas also conceded that the two high-speed tracks in Belgium and Italy after Formula 1's summer break will be a tougher test than the tight and twisty Hungaroring.
"We have raised our game in the last few races and worked hard with the team over many man hours to be as competitive as possible," Taffin noted.
"Of course there is still room for improvement – which is positive – and we now need to aim to be competitive in all types of conditions."
"We've also got to use this [win] as motivation for the second part of the year. We know it will be a lot harder when we return, but we know what our strengths are and we've got some interesting work in progress that will help," he continued.
"We now need to turn everything to our advantage and maximise opportunities when we return, just as we did on Sunday."
