Renault’s 2009 F1 car has broken cover. The R29 is the car they hope will improve on the performance of the R28 (two wins last year) and propel Fernando Alonso into contention for the drivers’ championship.

The first pictures of the new Renault R29 are below.

Update: Is this how the Renault R29 was supposed to look?

Alonso starts his sixth season for Renault alongside Nelson Piquet Jnr, who was a rookie in 2008.
