A chief part of Bell’s new role, which he will fulfill on a part-time basis, will involve developing technical collaborations between the Renault team and other third parties, as well as maintaining several aspects of his current job, as Renault seeks to become F1 frontrunners once more.
Renault confirmed that Bell will not be replaced as the chief technical officer, with the team now establishing an alternative technical structure.
Bell, who’s been the chief technical officer for Renault since the team’s return to F1 in 2016, is currently in his 37th season of Formula 1, having begun his career working in McLaren’s aerodynamics department in 1982.
It’s also his third spell at Enstone, having joined Benetton first in 1997, and again in 2001 after a brief stint with Jordan. Bell came on board with Renault’s F1 return project after working as the technical director for Mercedes between 2011 and 2013, and then as a technical consultant for Manor Marussia in 2015.
