    So that means they're not unveiling their car and livery yet?

    Exactly, they will present the team, the personnel, K-Mag and maybe even the team wear but no livery or car. :unsure:

    Apparently Renault will also reveal their livery tomorrow, but not the new car.

    I updated the OP with new pictures released by Renault.
    Sadly the stream of their presentation does not work so we might have to wait a bit longer to get the whole livery... :(

    It just looks like a Formula Renault car. Although with their engine it may be what their going for...

    The only good thing about the launch was it at least confirmed K-Mag as the driver.

    Would have been better if they inverted the colours so the insides are black and the whole car yellow.
    And today, it's 2 weeks to go for the next team to launch their 2016 car!

    Yes but it will at least be used in Melbourne.

    Must've missed that then. Can anybody confirm?

    "Confirmed Renault Sport President Stoll that one wants to go into the testing in Barcelona 22 February with the model shown on 3.February in Paris . To start to the season in Melbourne on March 19, the RS16 is then updated again technically . Also at the painting itself could then change something"

    Renault confirmed the presented RS16 is just a showcar based on the old chassis.
