Abiteboul, boss at Renault, claims this is very damaging to the development for Renault. The French team are on a five-year plan to return to the top, but Abiteboul claims this will be hard to achieve if the current B-team situation continues.
“It looks like you will soon be unable to win races if you do not have a B-team. We see this as a serious problem that needs to be recognized by the FIA. We do not want to be part of such a Formula 1,” Abiteboul told Auto Motor und Sport.
Abiteboul believes a partnership with McLaren offers no solution because the teams are almost equal to each other.
