Renault has claimed that their car is capable of showing more pace ahead of the introducing a revised package at the German Grand Prix in Hockenheim, after being comprehensively outpaced by Ferrari for the second race in a row.
Having already run the C-specification RS26 engine already in recent races, Renault are confident that they have done enough race mileage to justify fettling with it to give slightly more power and also get back the edge over the Ferrari.
Indeed, head of engine development Denis Chevrier claims the engine is not showing its full potential but as Ferrari begin to switch the formbook around, he believes they can unlock more from it.
"The C specification engine was introduced as a new family of engines, which gave us a baseline for then developing the V8 even further. Fernando will have a one-race old unit in Hockenheim, Giancarlo a brand new one, but both drivers will benefit from performance upgrades for the next race.
"The engine is intrinsically capable of achieving greater performance, and by changing both the tuning and the way we run the engine, we will be able to unlock more of it from the next race onwards."
