FIRST PICTURES: Renault R30

See all the best shots from the launch of the striking new Renault R30 at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia today
The 2010 Renault R30 is the first car to be launched under the Enstone-based outfit's new Genii Capital management, and when it was officially presented at the Circuit Ricardo Tormo in Valencia today (Sunday), it certainly caught the attention.

The bold, striking yellow-and-black livery has been likened to a bumblebee, and is a clear throwback to the iconic Renault colours of old, from the French manufacturer's original stint in the top flight in the late 1970s and early-to-mid 1980s.

The team also used the opportunity to unveil new race driver Vitaly Petrov alongside former Canadian Grand Prix-winner Robert Kubica, and announced Jérôme d'Ambrosio and Ho-Pin Tung in its reserve roles.

Nice car! But in terms of looks, I think that the Sauber looks the best with the Ferrari #2 and the Renault in a close 3. No patriotisms... just my opinion.

I like the colour scheme - reminiscent of the old Jordans when HHF improbably challenged for the WDC. It will certainly be easier to pick them out, which is handy as they will be in the midfield. Red Bull and Torro Rosso should be easy too. Fast car = Red Bul etc
