Renault have a lot pinned on the next week in Spain.

For the race weekend itself Renault will be bringing upgrades to the Barcelona track to trial an updated rear wing and upgrades for the front wing.

Whilst Jolyon Palmer will run with a new chassis.

But for the test session that follows on from the race weekend, Renault have a number of alterations to trial including a new suspension, aero updates and evaluating highly anticipated B-spec power unit.

‘Barcelona is the start of our development program and we will see some new developments coming through in the race, with several others scheduled for the test afterwards. Renault F1 managing director Cyril Abiteboul told

?We look at this race as a marker in the sand: the exit point of our recovery from the takeover and the first race as ?our? team. It will start small, but I?m confident we will gain momentum as we go forward.?

Esteban Ocon and Kevin Magnussen will share duties during the two-day test.

Renault are hopeful to get two versions of the new engine ready for the Barcelona test, enabling both Renault and Red Bull Racing to run it.
