Only Ricciardo will use the latest evolution of the Renault engine

Hulkenberg does not mount it in France because it would incur penalties, the same happens to Sainz. Kvyat will close the grid at Paul Ricard.

After putting on the track its biggest aerodynamic evolution of the season, Renault has also mounted on the RS19 of Daniel Ricciardo the new specification of its engine, from which they expect improvements in reliability and power. It is the third unit used by the Australian, so he will not incur any type of penalty. Nico Hulkenberg, his partner, has already used four thrusters, and so that he does not start from the back of the grid at the home GP, the French team has chosen to delay this evolution in his car. "It's a good step forward," says Abiteboul, director of the team.

As for McLaren, Renault's customer team, there are no new engines. Sainz has already used three because of the break in Australia, in the first race of the year. In Barcelona the first technical evolution was added and once the second one is released, which will arrive before the summer, the Spaniard will close the grid for the penalties. Lando Norris still has a wild card.

Who has been punished already this weekend is Daniil Kvyat, who will use the fourth Honda combustion engine of the year (in the eighth race). The two Red Bull and their Toro Rosso employ a new version of the Japanese power unit that promises more power. Alex Albon, the other driver from Faenza, will have to wait.
