F.Renault Eurocup to continue
In 2019, Renault Sport Racing and Tatuus will continue their historic relationship with the arrival of the Tatuus F.3 T-318 chassis, powered by a 1.8L turbo-powered engine derived from the New Mégane R.S. power plant, delivering between 270 and 300 horsepower. Michelin will continue to be the sole tyre supplier.
Renault Sport Racing’s focus on safety will be reinforced with this car meeting the latest standards in the area, as demonstrated by the presence of a halo and anti-intrusion panels. Safer, more powerful and more efficient, this new Formula Renault will contribute to the FIA’s motor racing pyramid, while better preparing drivers for the next level.
As the only category enjoying the official support of a constructor entered in F1, the Formula Renault Eurocup will continue to grow. The regulations will be in line with those already in force. The format of two 50-minute collective tests, two 30-minute qualifying sessions and two 30-minute plus one lap races will return. 12 days of collective tests will also be organised.
The first nine circuits confirmed for the 2019 season also host Formula 1: Barcelona, Paul Ricard, Hungaroring, Monza, Nürburgring, Red Bull Ring, Silverstone, Spa-Francorchamps and to be confirmed, Monaco as the curtain raiser for the Formula 1 Grand Prix. Another track will soon be added for a total of ten meetings over the course of the season.
As has been the case since 2017, the Champion will have the opportunity to join the Renault Sport Academy and, in addition to a financial backing, gain access to a number of tools at Enstone and Viry-Châtillon aimed to his development to the upper levels.
In total, a field of some 30 cars is expected on the starting grid for the first race of the 2019 season, the 49th in the history of Formula Renault.
