"All the signs are good as they are now settled in their new facilities, the workforce is larger and more experienced and the budgets are completely in line with what is needed to succeed. It's going to be a really good day when we score points together!" he added.
Williams F1 might be the newest addition to the fold, but they've already found GP success together with victory in last year's European Grand Prix in Valencia with Pastor Maldonado. "We will definitely build on the strong links we recreated in 2012," Taffin said.
But the biggest issue for Renault
is the change in F1's engine specifications for 2014. It means the end of the line's for this year's V8 engines, and all the engine manufacturers will be mainly focused on working hard to develop their new V6 offerings for next season.
"A key factor will be our ability to work on both 2013 and 2014 engines programmes in parallel, which is why it is crucial to have a turnkey service in place trackside," Taffin explained. "There are a few remaining tweaks we can introduce on engine mapping that will improve fuel consumption even further, but with this being the end of the V8 era we will try to make the engine as neutral as possible."
