Renault has become the latest team to confirm the date for its 2019 Formula 1 season launch, with an event set to take place on February 12 next year.

Renault enjoyed its strongest season since returning to the sport as a works team in 2016 last year, finishing fourth in the constructors' championship and as the leading midfield team.



The French manufacturer will be boosted by the arrival of former Red Bull F1 driver and grand prix winner Daniel Ricciardo in 2019, when the Australian will partner Nico Hulkenberg.

Renault confirmed via Twitter on Thursday it would be holding a season launch event on February 12 next year in an event at its UK base of Enstone, but has not confirmed if it will also be unveiling its new F1 car next year on the same day.



Renault's 2019 season launch will come one day earlier than Racing Point's unveil in Toronto, Canada, on February 13, while Ferrari will unveil its new car on February 15.

The first F1 pre-season test will begin on February 18 in Barcelona, Spain.
