Renault name unchanged line-up
Renualt drivers Jarno Trulli and Fernando Alonso
Trulli and Alonso have a good relationship
Renault have named an unchanged driver line-up for the 2004 season, with Fernando Alonso and Jarno Trulli continuing as team-mates for a second year.

Spaniard Alonso has made a name for himself as a future superstar this season with a series of outstanding drivers.

There was some speculation earlier in the season that Italian Trulli might not be retained after struggling early in the year, but a series of strong performances in which he has outpaced Alonso have secured his place.

Renault F1 managing director Flavio Briatore said: "Everybody knows Jarno is an extremely fast, competitive racing driver. Fernando has more than justified the faith we showed last year and is maturing with the team as he acquires experience."

Renault have achieved their aim of mixing it with the top three teams this season, although they still look likely to finish in fourth place in the constructors' championship.

"Our objectives for 2003 have been achieved and in some cases exceeded," Briatore said.

"For next season, we are looking to take a further step forward, and believe these are the drivers who will enable us to do that."

Renault F1 chairman Patrick Faure added: "The atmosphere in the team is excellent, the relationship between our drivers is outstanding, and the technical team works well with them.

"A stable environment is one of the pre-conditions for success, and this is why we believe maintaining our driver line-up is a key factor as our programme builds to full competitiveness."
