Renault head into the Hungarian Grand Prix this weekend confident they have a car that can challenge for victory.
Fernando Alonso won his first Grand Prix in Hungary last year while the team are also boosted by Jarno Trulli's triumph in Monaco back in May.
"I am feeling confident. We were fast in Hungary last year," said Alonso.
"We have been fast with maximum downforce already this season in Monaco so I hope we can have a good race and maybe be in with a chance to win."
Trulli's victory at Monaco was the only time anyone has beaten Michael Schumacher this year.
And Renault's confidence for Hungary is based on the two circuits being similar in characteristics - both are slow tracks, with low-grip surfaces that requires the cars to run with maximum aerodynamic downforce.
Trulli said: "Although there has been a testing ban over the past weeks, we will have a new engine spec in Hungary, new aero parts and the track suits our car. We are confident of being very competitive."
Alonso became the youngest winner in Formula One when he stormed to victory at last year's Hungarian Grand Prix aged 22.
Renault technical director Bob Bell said: "The circuit was very good to us last year, and our car this year is probably best relative to the competition on slower circuits where we can use maximum downforce.
"We will be hoping for a similar level to that we demonstrated last year although somehow, I doubt we will find ourselves lapping Michael Schumacher this time around.
"We have made a sensible tyre choice following hot weather testing and we have every confidence we can manage our tyres correctly during the event."
