New front wing for Renault
The Renault team will be running with a new front wing as the yellow cars hit the track in Australian Grand Prix practice on Friday morning. The R30s of Robert Kubica and Vitaly Petrov will also feature modifications to the rear wing. It was an unlucky start to the 2010 season for Renault in Bahrain as Kubica, who qualified ninth, was tipped into a spin by Adrian Sutil at Turn 2 as Petrov rose from 16th to 11th at the start but eventually retired with suspensions problems. For Melbourne, however, Chief Race Engineer Alan Permane expects a step up.

"We have some new aero parts for Melbourne which should give us a bit more performance," he explained. "There's a new front wing and a new part on the rear wing, which improves our overall downforce."

Furthermore, as he aims to see both cars make Q3 on Saturday, Permane believes that the modifications should make a significant overall difference.

"I think it will because Albert Park is a bumpy track and our car rides the bumps well," he continued. "We saw that in Bahrain - where Robert and Vitaly were very competitive."
