Everything seems ready for the Australian Grand Prix which will usher in the 2020 Formula 1 season.
After the suspense at the launch event by the Renault team on February 12th at the L’Atelier Renault on the Champs-Élysées in Paris, where some "anticipations" of the pre-season test livery have been revealed, the French team unveils the entire R.S.20 livery.
In fact, Renault presented the whole R.S.20 livery for the first time in an event staged today at Albert Park. The 2020 version of the livery is very similar to that of last year which confirms the traditional colours, black and yellow. Among other things, the most remarkable difference is the rear wing which has switched from yellow to black.
Renault is the last team to confirm its race gear for 2020, while the rest of the teams unveiled the liveries of the season throughout last month's testing.
On the other hand, this change could be part of the agreement made with the new title sponsor, the DP World , whose branding is present on both front and rear wings.
In addition, the logistics provider is included in the team name, which is now called the Renault DP World F1 Team.
DP World and Renault F1 Team have signed an agreement making @DP_World the Global Logistics Partner and Title Partner of the team, which will become the Renault DP World F1 Team as from the 2020 season.— Renault F1 Team (@RenaultF1Team) March 11, 2020

The drivers Daniel Ricciardo and Esteban Ocon were also present at the event, appearing with their new race equipment for the first time after bringing the car on the track with a completely black colour, during the winter testing.
Daniel Ricciardo will want to start doing well from this weekend, as Melbourne is his home GP and alongside him is Esteban Ocon, who has taken over from Nico Hulkenberg.
After being a "spectator" for a year, during which he was a reserve role with Mercedes, the French driver is eager to start as well.
Having placed fifth in the F1 constructors' championship, the Enstone team must redeem a disappointing 2019, in which there was the McLaren's overtaking.
