Renault fell from a great height in 2007, and though they have made up some of their lost ground they are still some way from their mid-decade height.

The return of Fernando Alonso, the man with whom they won titles in 2005-06, has led to a major step forward.

But while there is no faulting the Spaniard's effort, his no-compromise approach has led to the team scoring less points than it might have done.

Renault insist they can recover form, but must fear Alonso's departure.
