Toso leaves Renault

Renault s chief of aerodynamics, Dino Toso, has left the team after eight years. Toso s departure was already announced in April, and as previously confirmed, Dirk de Beer has taken over all of Toso s responsibilities.

Toso has been in charge of Renault s aerodynamics since 2003 and was a key part of the team s drivers and constructors championship wins in 2005 and 2006.

“I would like to thank Flavio Briatore and Bob Bell for their professional and personal support throughout my time with the Renault F1 Team, during which we have enjoyed great success together,” Toso said.

“My passion for motor sport has always centered on innovative aerodynamics and been motivated by a thirst for competition. I am looking forward to tacking new challenges that will allow me to fully express my technical creativity in the years ahead, and take me back to what I love most the thrill of competition.”
